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.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

There is no particular shape to this - but it has obvious quality. Great quality crystal, well worked and I can only think it must be by a quality maker like Iittala or Kosta. For the time being I assume it represents an iceberg....
Your input will be highly appreciated.

I have no idea about it, but it reminds me more of a Glacier.....

Hi Ivo,
By chance I saw one of these this morning, with a sticker. It's Gibraltar Crystal - it is meant to be the Rock of Gibraltar.

Just one of those happy coincidences - I remembered the thread and the one in the charity shop still had its sticker ;D
I suppose the only "iceberg" is between the British and Spanish governments.... >:D >:D >:D
