Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

No, not that new. This design was used until the 1970s in various colours. Does it have a flat ground base? The older ones do, the newer ones don't. Is it amberina rather than ruby? If so, you have a rarity :shock:

No not bad for £1.99. I've never seen that design in red and the oval shape is not terribly common.

Ruby 269 is shown In Chris Stewart's book Davidson Glass, a history. Chris dates the ruby colour as starting from the early to mid fifties See also Chris' website: http://www.cloudglass.com/History.htm
