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.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

I know this is probably a stupid question but is there any way of telling Fostoria other than by the patterns.
No retreat, No surrender.

By feel - I am not joking.  But you have to handle a lot of it.

To me it has a very distinctive feel. Different from the other elegant depression glass makers.

Fostoria copied everything they liked or thought would sell, so even the pattern is not a reliable guideline....
