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.

Got some images of my "special" Caithness bits.
Ebony
Alchemy
Salome
A "Free-style" charger, limited Ed. (but I suspect mine's a second - it's not marked in any way)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Oh Sue they are gorgeous. The Salome particularly appeals - I will have to look out for some of that! Impact I have not heard of - was that a range or another one off  do you think?  Lucky you to live so close to the source of all this stuff.

thanks for putting up the photos.

No, Impact was a particular range - I'm fairly sure it appeared around the same time as your Cyclone vase - as did the charger above.
I saw a load of them, brand new, in a local jeweller's/gift shop place - same with Alchemy. I thought they were quite superb, but I found mine later. The point of studying the new stuff was to be able to recognise it elsewhere!
I've got a triangular "Free-style" charger too - just no pics of it. :-[
