No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Lol, I was on ebay just before I read this thread. I spotted a paperweight and studied it for about a minute wondering why it had a footed base. Then I came back here unaware that it was yours and viewed this thread and... same one. :o  ;D

Hi TC - not if it's my one , it just has a "scorpion" shear mark on the base, no impressed mark at all. There is a circle visible through the foot that is part of the globe above (probably where that was sheared. )

I think it is the lack of a mark that is holding it back... :'(
Thank you very much!

Definitely in the wild - a flea market on Merseyside - I almost bought it but resisted. I've got too much junk to sell and too much for keeping.

Well done you for having the power to resist... 8)

I've boycotted all auctions for the last week, and this coming week in a vain attempt to shift some of the various odds and sods wonderfully exciting items I have lying about getting dusty.
Thank you very much!
