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.

This is a delightful glass bottle, with no markings of any kind, does anyone have any clue to who made this. 8)

Could it be Italian. They made a lot of these round bottle vases.

My thoughts are that it looks like an Italian piece loosely based around Helena Tynell's Sun-flask Aurinkopullo.   :)

What does its bottom look like? (That's a question you'll be asked a lot here... bottoms are very important to glassies.)

that is a bottle made in a bottle plant and should have reference to the maker on the bottom.

Come to think of it I'm sure I've seen those with liqueur in them and a label on.
