A really handy litle book is Glass Fact File a - z by Ivo Haanstra, published by Millers and only £7.99.  ISBN 1 - 8490099-429-0. I got mine direct from Millers distribution as I couldn't find it in my local shops  The book is packed with other associated information - a good buy!

The only book worth bothering with for glass trade marks is Hartmann, only covers 1600 to 1945, costs an arm and a leg, weighs in at over 3Kg. But it is probably 99.9% complete with over 11,000 marks. Text in German
ISBN 3-925369-37-6.

Ivo's book is not really covering trade marks but glass makers.

There is US one too, less comprehensive and with misattributions (authors names is Geffen something)

Dat's the one Kevin. As it is known to mix-up IOW as Strathearn do not rely too much on the rest. It is cheaper though!

Of course you will need Ivo's book as a companion to Hartmann or on its own anyway :)

Frank just looked up Glasmarkenlexicon: Signaturen, Fabrik-und Handelsmarken, 1600-1945 and its £180 ish, is it easy to understand even if you dont speak German, as for me thats a lot of money for one book, but if its well recomended and usefull even to those of us that know not a single word of German. Do you think it would ever be translated in to English???

Google translate handles many languages well, including German and Czech (well enough for me to send and receive understandable emails anyhow!) http://translate.google.com
