sorry, a trifle asleep this end ;D

but yes, all separate images from the museum should carry a watermark.

 ;D I wouldn't have worried too much on this occasion  -  I was thinking more of future posts.                     
It occurs to me that tag names (is that what they're called) were probably not what the museum or Archives had in mind, and like some of the other older members of the GMB I use my own name  -  personally I can never understand why adults should see the need for anything other than their real name.
However, m is your chosen Board moniker, and I don't foresee a problem with using that in the watermark, alghough you might wish to indicate the year................no need to shange these though ;D

Sorry about that! For the record I wasn't using this platform to sell anything parse, I was responding to a member's comment regarding a piece which was needed to complete their collection.

Cheerio

Please don't worry.  And thanks to Kev for moving the posts :)
It is lovely to see your collection so thank you for posting, but the marketplace is where all sales type comments go.  It means more people will see your post as well if you are hoping to sell a few pieces.

I'm just adding this for reference in case I forget -
I think there is a possibility my flask could also be Flühli-Glas - possibly.

There are remarkable similarities between the enamelling on some pieces I've found but finding a milchglas flask is quite difficult. The depiction of the lady has similarities though with one or two I've found in clear glass.

Here are two examples of opalglas or milchglas flasks  (click on the 'museum' tab on the left and scroll down to second picture)

also some photos here but all clear glass

Thank you Ivo :)
It's quite difficult to find milchglas/beinglas/opalinglas versions as you can see most of the links are clear glass.

I'd found the realorrepro site before - makes very interesting reading ...

My current thoughts for mine are most likely German or Swiss rather than Bohemian now.  I like to have a 'considered' guess just in case I turn out to be right in the end  ;D
