Page 7: Striated Ruby

Cache from Bryn Athyn Glass Works
The Bryn Athyn Glassworks produced a number of colors but their crowning achievement was a beautiful striated red which matched a color unique to 12th & 13th century medieval glass.

You can see this color today in the background of the “Flight to Egypt” panel from the cathedral of St. Denis which is one of the most important medieval panels collected by Raymond Pitcairn. It is located in the Treasury Room of the Glencairn Museum.
