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.

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)

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...............

The original link is dead but I've tracked down a copy of the Glossary PDF via the Way Back Machine on archive.org - this link should give you a PDF download of the file.
