Scotland's Glass another milestone...
« on: February 01, 2009, 11:09:15 PM »
The Catalogue now contains over 4,000 items with 7,000+ images. With 1000's more in the pipeline.

We have a dedicated group gathering material for Caithness weights and ware, but no-one is doing much to get the rest of Scotland's glass showing (and I can only do so much). So if you have anything by a Scottish maker - Art, Collectable, Industrial, laboratory.... send in pictures or information please.

Anyone whose work is not currently shown will jump the queue to increase the comprehensiveness of coverage. No limits on items per person/company and no limits on the number of images for each piece.

Certainly, images as large as possible and on a plain neutral background please. It helps if we can show several angles and any markings on the base. Email limit 4mb each, using e-mail button to left of this posting, thank you.

Please mention dimensions and any details that you know of. Pictures remain your copyright.

Does this include Scottish Georgian glass Frank? Scotland produced some distinctive stems/forms and engraving.

OK Frank. I'll do some serious homework; and send some stuff to you. There are some distinctly Scottish stems/forms and engraving; mostly attributed to Edinburgh; though Alloa is an obvious source of Nalsea type early 19th C bottles etc, some with seals. I'll be ignoring the Jacobite engraved 18th C glasses  (:( an obvious minefield!) and best passed by .......... though there are some authentic examples ........  :) Don't hold your breath for any 17th C attributable ........... though there might be .....
