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.

He looks very happy in his little fish bowl. And you won't have to feed him or clean his bowl!

Ah, another one of us that doesn't clean their glass  ^-^

I find that I have to when the layer of dust on the top turns into felt...

but then you can just lift it off in one piece and give the underneath a quick rub....  :chky:
Thank you very much!

But I presume we don't know the name of this blue fishy then?

I shall christen him Brian in the interim... :clap:



Thank you very much!

hello Lynne, your paperweight is one of a series of 5, i have one of the same as yours and one orange fish of the same series. i also have all of the info you need. but can i find the boxes and the info, no chance, i have searched through my loft and there is no sign of them. i will have another look tomorrow, i know i haven't thrown them out as i keep all of the boxes i get.

kindest regards theglassnut....
