This window sash is part of a double hung pair in which the lower half is unfortunately long gone. But the upper half survived and is an eye-catching piece on its own. The central ornament features deep emerald green, amber, and white slag glass. The main body of the window is pebbled textured glass which is ideal for privacy such as in a bathroom, but lets lots of light into the room. The border is an unusual pink and yellow slag glass. Slag glass, also known as marble glass or malachite glass, is a type of opaque, streaked pressed glass. Production of slag glass originated in late-19th-century England, where glass manufacturers are thought to have added slag from iron-smelting works to molten glass to create a range of effects—from tortoiseshell to marbling. The variations in color and depth that slag glass provides make this style of glass ideal for windows and lamps, providing privacy in windows yet allowing light into rooms.
