 :hi:

Sometimes you'll get an answer in 30 seconds - other times, it could be weeks, months or even years before something can be identified, sometimes you just drop off the bottom of the page into obscurity - or the "unresolved queries" forum.

But you will get reviewed, rescued, bumped or id'd in due course, I'm sure... it just may take a while! :)

In the meantime I'm kinda following Frank's advise in that I'm going to post a query on Scotland's Glass.  I'm just waiting for my registration to be accepted.  If I find out what it is, I'll let you know.

Scotland's Glass and the Scottish Glass Society are not the same thing

Hi.  Yes, I know.  I went to the Scottish Glass Society but I couldn't see a facility for logging a query with photos so I followed a link and found Scotland's Glass, which does have that facility . . . hence I'm 'kiinda following Frank's advice'.  I hope I haven't committed some kind of faux pas!

You have to send an e-mail to the SGS and with luck they will not forward it to me... not that I mind of course. Made at least one great discovery through that route. I doubt they will see it on SG but the more exposure the quicker an answer. As somebody out there does know!

Nancy, this is a beautiful bowl....could you not try to attract Pamela's attention?  I am certain she would know of it.

Frank - thanks so much for taking an interest in this.  I would have to pay a fee to join the Scottish Glass Society, and that's just not a viable option just now!

Rosie - I'm new to this forum and don't know who Pamela is but am assuming she is a member so perhaps she will see this post at some point.  Why would she be likely to know of it?

Many thanks.
Nancy

Hi Nancy....sorry, please forgive me, I tend to forget that we all had to start as new members. :usd:

Pamela has the most amazing collection of pressed glass.....she is in Germany, and is a member here that I (in fact probably all of us!) always turn to when I have a pressed glass query. her site is http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/ and you can look through that lot when you have a few hours to spare and a large cup of tea!
