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"

Thanks Keith, would that be the large green one or the smaller blue? they are both quite different in the style of surface finish but the bases look similar.

They are both made with the same technique.  The difference is just in how long the frit and powder on the surface was melted into the piece.

Anne, getting dizzy following this thread ;D you moved it from general glass to British then to paperweights?
Yes they are glass, are we then saying then they are by a British maker?  the initial suggesting was Heron Glass.
Sach you say they are both made by the same technique but do you think they were made by the same hand?
So many questions and so little time eBay is calling  ;D

cheers Chris

Seems likely that they come from the same source but it's not proof.
