Ruby Stained

Ruby staining is a decoration applied to clear pressed glass. The ruby staining is a chemical solution that includes sulfate of copper and sometimes gold. This chemical solution is painted onto the glass and the glass in then fired in a kiln at a temperature of about 1000 degrees where it turns red and adheres to the glass.  Different factories used slightly different chemical formulas which accounts for the different color variations. Sometime the chemical solution was applied cold but this process was not as successful because the ruby staining scratched or wore off.
