Another in the series of very elegant ruby red teardrop antique church glass suncatchers

As with the rest of the glass in this collection, the pattern is permanent fired-on paint and is permanent and weatherproof and the soldered edging has a black patina to accentuate the painted pattern.

Size: 5" long by 2-3/8" wide.


Do please note that although all the reds are from the same window and from the same border for a large window and are the same shade, some pieces are definitely darker and this is entirely due to the varying thicknesses of the glass.

If considering any of the pieces in red, please look at all the other red pieces to get a better idea of the tone of the dark wine red in some of the darker pieces and the much lighter red in some of the thinner pieces backlit by the sun

This variation is what you find in very old glass before modern glass making technology was able to eliminate the variations. In addition, the red in the same piece will also vary greatly in its brightness depending on the brightness of the light coming through it.

This variation in shading, this changes in thickness is what gives old church windows the shadings and charm that are very difficult to duplicate today.

The reds in this series do very well and show their richness of color best with a good backlight and of course you get a much more vivid red when the piece is sunlit.
