Are you speaking of Oxblood slag or cullet (glass), such as seen in the 1920's? Is this the type of "Oxblood" you're inquiring about?

My familiarity with the term "Oxblood" refers to a bloodish-red colored slag glass, often swirled with a pale yellow semi-opaque glass (sometimes referred to as "Seville Yellow"), and used by American glass companies during the 20's and forward - particularly for children's marbles and toy glassware. This color combination was also referred to as "Oxblood and Lemonade". Akro (Agate) Glass Co. was famous for their prolific manufacture of marbles in this color, but good specimens have become quite collectible...

If that is your question, then my guess would be that this is not Oxblood. Rather, it looks like end-of-day glass or cullet from a glass batching, where colors were combined and swirled and these were remnants. From the colors, I'd be inclined to guess 60's-70's, but couldn't be sure...

Any more information on the source?
I've got a murrini for that,'ya know!

De's info sent me on a google hunt. I came across the following marble whose colors very much resemble the green/red piece of cullet you have: (3rd from bottom).

Does this mean this is what you have? Who knows LOL But it might be a place to start researching.
