Amberina Glass Pitcher. This vintage amberina glass pitcher measures about 5 inches tall. It is hand blown and has a smooth pontil on the bottom. We believe this pitcher was made by Blenko Glass.
At the end of the 1800ís Libbey Glass Company hired Joseph Locke from the Cambridge Glass Company. In 1883, he patented amberina glass. This Victorian Era glass is distinctive in its colors. Gold was mixed with the molten glass to produce stunning reds and oranges that tapered into a fine amber color. Other companies, including Blenko, Fenton, Boyd and Kanawha later received licenses from Libbey to produce amberina art glass pieces.
