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.

Help with identity of massive charger.
« on: September 02, 2008, 12:06:31 AM »
I have a questionably wonderful glass dish with a sticker that reads 'VILNIAUS, STIKLO, STUDIJA. made in Lithuania.
Can anyone tell me how I can find out about the makers. Googling has given me a headache as I can't understand any of the eastern european lingo that keeps flooding my screen. thanks steph.

well they have been making "art glasss" since 1975 (from 1920 to 1975 it was a bottle plant) and their products are heavy & colourful - but you must have figured that out.
short desription here http://www.lpk.lt/Default.asp?DL=E&TopicID=77 but the link to their website is dead.

 :clap:  Thanks for such prompt help - It's wonderful to see/know origins of items.  I have learnt so much since finding this site and have the realization that I am woefully ignorant still! 
My Stiklo piece was bought for £20 on a whim, now having seen some of their other flamboyant pieces I shall be on the look out...when I visit the continent.  Somewhere packed away I have another piece similar in colours to the Stiklo boldly vibrant type.  That piece has a sticker 'Imported by Wicked Glass', Has anyone heard of this company?
Thanks again.........steph.
