Ruby Red Sea Glass in Light

~ by by Rita (Souris, PEI, Canada)

Found this large piece of red glass on a Beach near Souris, PE, Canada.

Just thought it was another dark piece of glass until I got home and held up to the light.

Sent pictures to Richard Lamotte and his comment was:

"The thick sides and base make me think some type of Royal Ruby vase from the 1930s or 40s.

"There were a number of vases and tumblers having a similar base form.

"It really is a tough one but it clearly doesn't look like the more modern Royal Ruby Schlitz from the 50s and 60s.

"It's an amazing find to say the least."

I would be interested to hear if anyone has found similar pieces.

I usually find 3-4 blue pieces each time I walk the beach.

My family has also found red and orange.

Ruby Red sea glass
by: Kathy Jo Carlisle

First let me comment - Great find.

I've been lucky a time or two. I've found 2 very thick pieces of red and 1 cornflower blue.

I was told the blue one was, most likely, part of an ashtray from the same time era as the ruby red.

I collect for the fun of collecting and don't know that much. But it does look kind of like part of a candy or serving bowl.

Ruby Red Beach Glass - WOW
by: Diana

That's amazing! Can you find me one, too? :-)

The only piece of ruby red sea glass I have found was small and it is the ONLY piece of red I have ever found.

I have been looking for years!
