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.

A very good start to a cold, wet and miserable weekend, Gary.  ;D

Even better.
My best find this year was a uranium Sowerby "Frog and Bullrushes" bowl - quite a scarce beast.
It was worth a day trip to St. Andrews and having to tolerate being surrounded by Etonians - we went to the rather more civilised Cupar afterwards for respite - my only finds there were a wfs amber swan and a couple of really great '70s Ravenhead "Beer Glasses" - a stupendous and practical design I have recently started acquiring.
Nothing as exciting as this find of yours. 8)
Cheers, Sue (M)

That's very nice Gary. I never see Monart round here at all!

Sue, which Ravenhead beer glasses are they?

I have a boxed pair, so I know they're simply called "Beer glasses", Anne.  :)
They're an unusual shape - the "stem" is part of the glass itself.

Perhaps I should start a thread sometime on the textured/designer-shaped drinking tumblers I've been squirrelling away! I rather like them, but then there was the huge fuss and surge in interest in all the Alexander Hardie-Williams printed tumblers (which I'm not overly fond of) so I reckoned I'd been pipped at the post regarding any tumbler followers!
I still really prefer the textured/designer-shaped ones.

this is the "Beer glass". :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sorry for hi-jacking, Gary. And yes, It's a great buzz - spotting something on the shelf, making a bee-line for it, trying not to get over-excited because it's probably broken, getting it in your mitts and then checking and checking and checking for damage, excitement rising as none is found... or serious pissadointment when it is!
