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.

Hi just having a clear out and found 3 pieces of i think chance glass. I am not sure about the patterns or the dates but will try to throw a lead in for them.
Is the first blue piece called carnival in artic blue its got a hammered type finish. 11.25 in long x 6.75 inch wide tear drop shape
Is the second dish called spider web pattern 4.75 dia and 1.75 inches tall
The third swirl dish 4 inch x 5.25 inch
All have gilt edges
The dates and correct patterns would be great
Many thanks
