Vintage From Paul is pleased to offer these stunning Ripley US Glass EAPG Ruby Stained Arched Oval Father Goblets. Arched Ovals is also known as Concave Almond . The pattern dates to the 1890's.  

Ruby staining is a decoration applied to clear pressed glass. The ruby staining is a chemical solution that includes sulfate of copper and sometimes gold. This chemical solution is painted onto the glass and the glass in then fired in a kiln at a temperature of about 1000 degrees where it turns red and adheres to the glass.  Different factories used slightly different chemical formulas which accounts for the different color variations. Sometime the chemical solution was applied cold but this process was not as successful because the ruby staining scratched or wore off. 

The sole figure work on Arched Ovals or Concave Almond consists of 12 very deep elongated thumbprints encircling the lowest third of the body with the almonds point upward. The patteren goblet is a three part glass mold. The ruby stained body is plain except for the script engraving of "Father".
