After finding a written formula for “Red Glass”, I turned my attention to the matching envelope which would finally yield a sample of Saint’s red.
The envelope was marked as containing one sample of red, one sample of greenish white, one sample of pale blue, one sample of “slightly hot” flesh (draw your own conclusion here!), one sample of saffron yellow and a brown.
In fact, the envelope contained only 5 pieces of glass – all samples as promised - except the red.
I went through the complete collection, 29 boxes of envelopes, and separated them into colors: blues, greens, purples, tawny browns, flesh, saffron yellow, clears and reds. In each case every color was there, except the reds!
