Slag glass has a backstory that adds to the interest in owning one of these types of lamps. In 1890s England, glassmakers began adding cooled down silicate “slag” formed on the top of molten iron to their glassmaking process. The pulverized slag would be added to liquified glass to create a beautiful marbling effect. The earliest examples of slag glass had a brown, purple, blue or green base color mixed with streaks of a creamy white color. Orange, pink and red colors were more recent color additions.
