Amberina was originally developed by New England Glass Company in 1883. It is a type of glass with gradient color that starts out red at the top of the piece and changes to amber at the bottom. Sometimes the colors are reversed, featuring the red at the bottom of an item; but that doens’t happen too often. Variations in hue range from lighter shades that look almost pastel pink and yellow to rich, deep tones of ruby red and amber. A large number of different companies isued pieces in Amberina glass beginning in the late 1800’s and continuing into the early 20th century.
Jeannette Bottle Works began producing bottles in the late 1887 in Jeannette, Pennsylvania. In 1889 they expanded production and changed their name to Jeannette Glass Company. They are best known for their Depression Glass, they were one of the seven major companies producing Depression Glass and issued 14 different patterns from 1928 through 1938. During the 1950’s Jeannette introduced Cameo Glassware which was their version of Milk Glass. In 1961 Jeannette bought the old McKee plant and continued to produce glassware for both wholesale and retail businesses. In 1970, the company’s name changed to Jeannette Corporation. They ceased production and closed the factory in 1983.
