Word of the Week: Satin Glass

Satin glass is a type of glass that has a frosted look to it, instead of a glossy finish.

Satin glass dates back to the late 1800s and was first made in both England and the United States. It’s fairly collectible. Though, as with most things, it was produced in great numbers and no longer brings in a high price.

Satin glass for me, however, is a bit harder to find and a bit classier looking than most other glassware. Here are some examples:

Gorgeous hand blown bowl. The pink portion is satin.

These bowls are only satin on the bottom. You can note the difference in shine between the two sides, particularly on the orange one.
