Slag glass, otherwise known as marble glass, is opaque pressed glass streaked with color. The word "slag" is derived from the practice of 19th century English glass makers adding slag from iron-smelting to molten glass to create different designs and effects to the glass. Kanawha Glass Company was based in Dunbar, West Virginia and produced glass art objects from 1953 until its closure in 1987.
