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 might be a stupid thought along the lines of "It's got a polished pontil, it must be Whitefriars", but could they be Webb with that huge pontil

No idea at all Christine. Webb could be as good an option as any other at the moment. I have a feeling this one may take a while to run to ground! ;)

Too crude for Webb, look at the handle. They used to be touted as Monart which is why ended up with one in my early days.

I saw a multi-coloured one on Wednesday but that had a crackle surface, than it had been rolled in small coloured chips before reheating. Smaller pontil as well but very similar shape.

There are a lot of candidates in the UK. Labelled or marked example will likely be the only definitive solution. It will turn up one day.

Christine, there was a crackle one at the Collectors' Fair in Kendal last weekend too. I had a look/feel of it - same size and shape, but that one didn't have the speckles and it was just mid-blue.

I have also realised that I have a crackle one in plain darkish green uranium glass
