The New England Glass Company of Toledo, Ohio, invented and patented the process to manufacture Amberina glass in 1883. To achieve their desired results, New England Glass would mix the components of the glass and then reheat it. The glass colors could be variable with this method, but this led to a huge array of lovely blended colors, all with approximately the same, but specifically different characteristics. The Libby Glass Company, who was the successor of New England Glass manufactured Amberina during the 1890's. Amberina has subsequently been made by more modern-day manufactures, but there is a notable visible difference.
This vase is the vintage late 1800's or early 1900's. It was hand blown, with the original pontil in place. The vase is nearly 5 inches tall and 4 & 1/4 inches in diameter. The beautiful and gentle top rim ruffle was skillfully hand formed and flawlessly blended into the ribbed body. This vase is an honest antique that is in exquisite condition.
