Vintage Amberina Moon & Stars Compote. This vintage amberina glass lidded compote measures about 8 inches tall and was made by L.E. Smith in the Moon & Stars pattern.
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.
