Flashed glass is the application of a thin layer of glass onto a glass object, by dipping it into molten glass. The flashing, if it is of a contrasting colour, can then be ground away to produce a pattern, similar to the technique for cameo glass. Most 19th century flashed glass was produced in Bohemia and England.
