one possible suggestion that might help...............    Fielding's Auctioneers - Mill Race Lane, Stourbridge (Midlands area in England)..............    are known to specialize in glass (believe they do have at least one glass only auction per year, and maybe more).

Details will be on the internet............    give them a call or send an email with pictures of your glass  -  am sure they will be happy to give advice.

Other outlets for selling i.e. boot sales, local auctions, general antiques dealers ......... could prove less than reliable or lack sufficiently wide public arena. :)

Can't you just put it safely out of reach?
Or is your 3-year-old a potential base-jumper?

There is stuff called Museum Gel, it can be used to "stick" something to a shelf so it doesn't get knocked over.
It's not really sticky, it's just sort of rubbery.

Three Wise Women would have asked for directions, arrived on time, delivered the baby, cleaned the stables and made a casserole...

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.
