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.

Hi Nick.

It was recorded last December, and I wanted at least £5K for the Bigaglia (not £10K, as they reported!).  I got 3 offers of £4K...and refused them all. I got the pleasure of telling Tamara Beckwith that I was not Father Christmas, in response to one of her offers, but they cut that from the final version (oddly enough). Less than a week after the program I sold the paperweight for £5,500....

Hi Alan,

Was flicking channels and half watching TV half on the Internet when suddenly you appeared on screen, totally unexpected, must admit I was surprised when they said you wanted 10K.

As you hadn't sold it I was going to offer £500 ;D

It's not signed mate so it's not worth much....they give dealers a bad name.

Well done for holding out for the price that you knew it to be worth.
