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.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Well I went mooching in a junkshop at lunchtime with the intention of trying to find some baby gates to keep our pup out of places she shoudn't be when we're out.  No luck on the gates, but got 2 calypto plates for 50p each  ;D xx

You know "Calypto" was designed by Michael Harris (of Mdina and Isle of Wight Studio Glass fame - one of pioneers of Studio Glass in Europe  :smg: ), as was the Anenome pattern?
