This is a jar from my cranberry glass collection.
textures, and shapes with one thing in common,
the rich and lucious color of the depth of pink that to me
is the reason why I began collecting the glass in the first place.
Since this piece is not marked in any way,
It has a satin finish and a ribbed pattern.
Because of the pontil mark in the above photograph, I can say it was made by hand.
This type of glass is also known as overlay. I know this because the inside of the jar is white.
I am facinated by the perfect pattern resulting from someones glassforming skills and how they used layers of glass to achieve the various colors and patterns of each piece.
