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"

Hi Ray,
it reads

REICHSMÜTTERDIENST IM DEUTSCHEN FRAUENWERK
MUTTERTAG 1935

I need a little time for historically correct translation, but can say already now, Muttertag is Mother's Day, in Germany always the second Sunday in May  :)

returning to you later

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)

it must be comparable to Hitler's WHW Winterhilfswerk Spendenbelege - google WHW Tieste Bremen please
in German language we tend to build endless words....

it reads
REICH (genitiv-S) MÜTTER (plural of MUTTER mother) DIENST (service)
IM (within) DEUTSCHEN (german) FRAUENWERK (women's association?)

difficult, Ray, as I have no ancestors alive I could ask  :(

and this leads me to a general question to all GMB members:
am I really the only one in Germany who contributes here? In fact I never came across a neighbour so far  :?

We're seriously lacking in Belgians and French collectionneurs, too
