Day 50-Ruby

Blenko Water Bottle Ruby

This looks like an older example of Ruby. I am wondering if higher temperatures make the Ruby glass go more toward the red.  It appears as if the fire polishing of the rim has made the lip retain its Ruby coloration while the rest of the water bottle, which did not get reheated, became amber.  This might explain why Blenko did not make Ruby during the colder months.
