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.

I had several much older (Victorian) pieces which were sun-purpled Rosie, but I was surprised to see the Viking suffered from it too. He looks almost permanently embarrassed! ;D

You might find this page of interest: http://www.patternglass.com/sunpurple.htm and if you search the board for sun purple / purpled / purpling there are a few more topics with examples / info. :)

Just found another blog discussing deliberate sun-purpling too, so am adding that for interest / reference:
