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 ""
Why not take a look on

No Paul it's not optic. I have put hobnail in quotes and it is used for blown glass as well, though mostly American glass. Hob nails are actually round-headed and nothing like the cut/pressed pattern
