Scottish Larger Size Possible, Victorian Hand Painted Sea Glass
In the victorian age there was a lot of hand painted glass about. but also earlier from about the middle of the 16th century new techniques for producing decorated glass had been introduced. Glass paints known as 'enamels' were used to paint directly onto the glass. To produce the colours, metallic oxides were added to a ground glass (frit) mixture. The resulting colour range included delicate yellows. The technique was to grind coloured glass to dust and mix it with 'fat oil' or gum and water - this is called the 'medium'. In the furnace the medium would be fired away, and the particles of coloured glass would melt and adhere, more or less firmly, to the sheet of glass.

A bit of history about approx age of my Pottery & Glass . There was a pottery in my area dating back to the 1600s. By the early 17th century my area was home to an industrial glass-making facility, the first of its kind in Scotland, which had two periods of operation: in the first half of the 17th century, and later reopening just before the turn of the 18th century. By the second quarter of the 18th century a pottery was founded on exactly the same site as the now defunct glass works, owned first by Anthony Hilcoat and then by George Gordon, and, together with other important east coast potteries of the period, it was producing various ceramic wares that were being exported across Europe. In the 1890s the colliery expanded and brick and drainage tile manufacture took place on the site: coal production ceased in 1962 and, finally, brick production came to an end around 1975
