Hello Anne  - I have now registered too, for the crystal patterns album (at least I think it's worked), so hope to be able to add some patterns - some with id's too - soon.

Pete  -  if you want to see examples of 'brilliant cut'  -  have a look at page 81 in Miller's '20th - Century Glass) (the Andy McConnell one).   These examples are all from the States, and show the quite typicall American cutting which includes pin wheel decoration, cross cut diamonds, and very deep curved mitres.     Very tasty.

Anne - meant to ask.........can the crystal album include things like Walsh's 'Fruiting Vine' pattern, which does include some wheel engraving, as opposed to cutting only?? :)

Paul, I've activated you on GlassGallery now.

I don't see why Walsh's 'Fruiting Vine' pattern and suchlike shouldn't be included. The criteria is crystal, so anything goes.  If we need to we can always sub-divide the album later. :)

Does the gallery need just general images of cuts by known makers?
I have a few I could add, when/if I can get the ****** things photographed.

Yes please Sue. Like any reference album, the more info it has the more useful it will be for everyone. :)

Sub dividing is a great idea. Individual makers would be useful. Can the tags be altered after I put them in ? I should have put details on like size and possibly date mark.
Pete. :-)

sorry, need the Mods please to amend as follows, if possible.
1..........put correct title of 'Kenilworth' onto the first item showing in Crystal Patterns

2..........please delete the four duplicated files (those with a comment) re the Walsh 'Fruiting Vine' on page 4.

I am getting better, but these were hiccups in my early attempts.

Many thanks. :)

Hi Paul, your 4 duplicates are deleted, but I'm not sure which file you want renaming. Can you give me the direct link please? That's the one in the info box below the image, and will end with a - followed by a number, like this -1234.  That link is the only one which will ensure I find the image you need, as the album page view sort order can be changed by using the + & - controls above the images, so your first image in an album might be the last for me, or somewhere in the middle even. :)
