Cranberry Glass

Red is one of my favorite colors and over the years I’ve collected a few pieces of red glass dishes known as Cranberry Glass, a few of the pieces I’ve inherited and I’ve bought a few.  I don’t use them a lot, but mostly during the holiday season.

Cranberry Glass is made by adding certain forms of gold to melted or molten glass, the glass is typically hand blown or molded in small amounts due to the high cost of making it.  Red or Cranberry glass has been around for a many many years, with some historians believing there was a form of it used by the Romans, it became especially popular during Victorian times and was most often used for vessels to hold desserts and flowers.

 

Join me today as we continue to celebrate “Eat A Cranberry Day” on Tabulous Design with a look at Cranberry Glass, both old and new.  Enjoy!!!
