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.

That could cause a lot of damage if it did go flying.
I've got an image of it heading rapidly towards my head in my brain!

What a beautiful lump of perfect, clear glass. :) And still clear after all these years!
What a find!
Cheers, Sue (M)
