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"

Antiques Roadshow Basic, Better & Best
« on: November 05, 2012, 11:53:43 AM »
In case anyone missed it (Don't you love iPlayer - it's available until 11th November) last nights Antiques Roadshow Basic, Better & Best featured Swedish glass with Andy McConnell!
I won't give the game away for anyone who wants to play along but was feeling very pleased with myself for getting them right! Hours pouring over reference material does pay off!  ;D

The bowl was far nicer than the giraffes - but I did recognise the giraffe one. Give me the bowl any day!

He did not say who the better bowl was by or I missed it.

I guessed right but as a Lindstrand collector I suppose I should have.
