Amberina glass ranges in shades of light to dark red and sometimes fuchsia at the top to shades of light to darker amber at the bottom, or visa-versa.... in which case it is called reverse Amberina. It is created by mixing a compound including gold in the molten glass and reheating it before it completely cools. The major producer of Amberina in the U.S. was the New England Glass Company, Toledo, Ohio, who patented the process in 1883 and prevented competitors from making the glass unless they had a license. The successor, the Libbey Glass Company made the glass in the 1890's.
