Yes, really wonderful story!!!  (The stories behind the glass are just as exciting as the glass itself...  Fabulous!)

Thank you all for giving this piece of wonderful Glass - its well deserved date, maker, and history back. 

I will now *attach* a label to it stating that info on it, and put it in my Glass Cabinet.  I do this with all my pieces, so that (hopefully) that history can now stay with the item while I am alive (and after).  I have warned my Kid that these are not *just* pieces of glass. (after I am long gone) -- These are pieces of ART.  When I find out info from all you Super People on the Board, I do attach that info to the pieces of glass.

It is my love of collecting glass (among other things) but also (in a sense) as saving (preserving) the history of it.  Its due Provence of its history.....

....and if my $5 purchase increases in value because it has a name, and history -- Well, that just an *extra* Godsend...

Thanks :thup:
