Cranberry Glass

I shot the following photo at a local museum. They had a great exhibit of Cranberry Glass. All the antique books I have read call this a red glass. But, the pieces I have seen always look pink to me. So I hope you will agree with me, at least for the purpose of this post. I have posted other photos and the history of this glass in a past post that can be found here.
While Victorian cranberry glass still graces the shelves of antique shows and shops in limited quantities, it's much easier to find newer items these days. Both Fenton and Pilgrim produce beautiful cranberry glass items sold in department stores and gift shops around the country.

I am linking this post to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.
