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.

Oh, fascinating, Pamela!  All of different depths...  It seems to me that the shoal is bigger than I realized. :usd:

Nice one Pamela! Lots of unknown pattern numbers... so where are all the catalogues?

I am now the proud owner of this beautiful set.  One platter (335 x 345mm at widest points) and six dishes (240 x 260mm).  The are so attractive in real life, but I'm very nervous about handling them.  They are in perfect condition - I would guess they've never been used.  The top fin of the platter has a black mark inside the glass, but that's OK.  My heart was in my mouth when I was positioning them for the photos.  I think I'm in love.  I'd love to use them but I don't think I will!

Well done, Nancy, congratulations!  :smg:
Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)
