Sabino Glass
 

          For the first one of the three different kinds of opalescent glass has a blue-tinged to it. To get the specific color, the molten glass is slowly cooling. This is because some parts are thick and crystallization happens inside. When this processed glass is done a golden like color and blue color shines through it depending on which position the light coming behind and the background also.
 

         Other known opalescent glassmakers were Lalique, Etling, Verlys, Hunebelle, Dieupart at Simonet Brothers, Cesare, Daniolo, Ferjac, P. D’Avesn, and Martel. Lalique, Sabino, Etling, Verlys, Hunebelle, Dieupart at Simonet Brothers, Cesare, Daniolo, Ferjac, P. D'Avesn, Martel

          Sabino glass was made in the 1920s and 1930s in Paris, France. Founded by Marius-Ernest Sabino (1878–1961), the firm was noted for Art Deco lamps, vases, figurines, and animals in clear, colored, and opalescent glass. Production stopped during World War II but resumed in the 1960s with the manufacture of nude figurines and small opalescent glass animals. The new pieces are a slightly different color and can be recognized.
