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 of worldly things 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
