Thanks Alan, I didn't realize that purple was caused by too much manganese in the batch. Good to know.

Some people get excited by purple, or other dark glass in Ysart weights as it is thought by many to be proof of manufacture in the 1930s. :)

It must surely be excess manganese in the batch possibly plus a little sun purpling because over here even Victorian glass struggles to achieve more than a grey or pale lilac after 100 years plus
