NEW RESEARCH PROJECT: glass carrying the J.I. Co label
« on: November 16, 2007, 07:26:49 AM »
If so, would you be willing to share? I'm interested in learning more about Jordan's Importing Company and the glass they imported and/or designed. Right now I'm in the process of collecting as many images as I can find. Eventually, these will be posted to a public site (maybe here) for those interested to peruse. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding this label in particular, so it peaks my interest. Do any of you have images to contribute? I'll start off with some of my own (please excuse my poor photography!):

Sorry, that should be *piques* my interest, not peaks. ::) It's time for this newbie to go to bed.  :sleep:

Hi Shannon, I've created you a public album on GlassGallery for folks to add images into. http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/thumbnails.php?album=532  - anyone can upload images into this album - you don't have to be registered on GlassGallery to do so.

alas, Shannon, 'tis...'tis  :cry:

but such is the way it can go... oddly, i've had more luck on ebay with vintage Viking pieces than Murano (i sold a Thistle Orb ashtray for over $100 a few months ago). so, overall, it works out. :)

Ebay is a mysterious place for sellers! I've lived that frustration (and elation) before too.

So, I've added a bunch of images to the J.I. Co gallery. Some are really nice, some not so nice. I have a bunch more, but I'm still waiting on the ok to use them. In reading copyright law, I do believe this would fall under "fair use" guidelines, but I don't want to commit a breach of netiquette or anything, so I'm asking everyone for permission.  :angel:

This archive topic on Copyright may help too, but obtaining written permission is sensible and protects you, the board and the gallery. 8) http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,795.0.html
