A useful reference here   (Mod: Note, link is to a PDF file rather than a webpage.)

Thank you, Christine :D  Some fascinating information there!  Especially the words describing faults in glass!  I expect to see far more accurate information about the nature of damage in people's ebay descriptions from now on  >:D  :24:

Some of the terms took me back to our visit to St. Helen's World of Glass, Christine - memories of which bring the terms to life.
There are also a good few words which could be used as expletives...

thanks very much indeed - this will be studied.
Cheers, Sue (M)

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

It also states, quite unambiguously, that a pontil is an iron rod.

thank you Christine  -  enormously valuable :)   I did toy with the idea of printing it off at work today - but was a little busy.   But when I get back to the office after Christmas, well...............
