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"

Restoration expert in USA

While I'm hesitant to have a weight restored unless its beauty just can't be seen without it I have a few weights that would greatly benefit from being polished. Any recommendations for someone in the USA to polish weights like the ones pictured? The Baccarat church weight had a chip and someone attempted to polish it and made it much worse. The NEGC Allan so kindly identified for me has scuffs along the top that restrict viewing the canes.
