Patented by Friedrich Egermann in 1828 lithyalin glass, a name taken from the Greek work for stone, requires the addition of either silver sulphate or copper sulphate to create the marbling effect seen. Silver sulphate created a yellow colour and copper sulphate created the red seen in this piece. The marbling in this example is most pronounced
