Dutch & Belgium glass
« on: December 16, 2015, 01:03:24 PM »
It's got my vote (of course)!

I appreciate that Dutch glass is considered second rate by many collectors but I'm still a fan, particularly of Rozendaal (Kristalunie, Maastricht).
Many years ago it was suggested here that the problem lay in the fact that the documentation is mostly in Dutch, and that's one of the reason's why I established Hogelandshoeve as a reference site in English.

Now there are several authoritative books in English (including 'Copier Complete' by Joan Temminck) and the Hogelandshoeve website attracts 200 visitors per day.

Sadly none of this work is yet listed in the glass museum, however we will continue to plough our lonely furrow and hope that you will find some space for us soon! ;-)

[Mod: Member flying free added the following in a post of the newly created thread: Rimac - "maker / retailer"? which has now formed a separate discussion.]

I vote for a forum.  Then we might acquire links here on the board and save me having to trawl around to find information elsewhere :)

[Mod: And member Patricia said in the other thread ...]

I'm also for a Dutch forum.
