Victorian Coloured Glass / Flashed Glass.
Flashed glass is often used in older properties, although thin it's colour lasts decades, starting popularity in the victorian era and still being made today.
First gathering of glass is taken from the pot then dipped into the a second colour, resulting in a sheet having one colour in the body covered with a thin flash of second colour.
Because flashed glass can vary in thickness across the pane it may impact the variation of the hue, but these are natural properties of the glass. Acid etching/sandblasting and brilliant cutting can then be used to erode away the flashed colouring to create different variations of glass designs.
