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.

This Board never ceases to amaze me. This debate has continued over a two year period, with contributions that are highly informative and really interesting to read. It makes me truly proud to be associated with you folk, and grateful that you trust us with your words - that we will keep them safe and available for people to find.
Kind regards

Just to reinforce Paul S.'s link to a blue example, here are photos of a PAIR in a different blue colour.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by carolyn.w).

Do any GMB members have photos of examples in even more colours to show, please?
