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.

Is the mottling on the inside or the outside? If on the outside, unless it is actually oily, I think it is meant it is meant to be there. It looks like stannous chloride or something similar and I'd be careful of trying to remove it because you could actually damage the surface.
