The Color Grenadine

Posting Number 2667   Date: 03/13/17     Return to Posting List

Rande Bly asks what is Grenadine? Rande says that some think it is this pink colored glass decorated with a black, or blue, or other colored rim around it. Rande says in a sense that is true but it is not limited to that. Grenadine is not a glass type with certain requirements but in his opinion it is just a marketing name for Gold Ruby. It is that simple.

Rande says in his opinion grenadine is NOTHING more than Gold Ruby.

Here are 2 examples of Grenadine submitted by Rande.

Gardner's Discussion on Gold Ruby

Additional information on Gold Ruby can be found at:

In the Glass of Frederick Carder by Paul V. Gardner in a section on Ruby Glasses at pp. 81-82, where the author elaborates, and a partial summary of that section states:

"Carder produced two basic types of ruby glass at Steuben: Gold Ruby and Selenium Ruby. The Steuben Gold Ruby is a delicate pinkish color made by adding 22-karat gold in solution to the batch.

"Carder's Gold Ruby was nearly always used as a casing over crystal or Alabaster glass, the thin casing resulting in a very beautiful pink color.

"The transparent Gold Ruby was not worked directly from the pot;...."

"Other Gold Ruby colors made at Steuben by adding coloring oxides to the basic ruby batch were Purple Gold Ruby (gold and cobalt), Amethyst Ruby (gold and manganese), Brownish-Yellow Ruby (gold and Iron), and Cinnamon Ruby (gold and uranium)."
