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.

What an unusual thing, Anne. Thank-you for showing. :)  :-*
I think it works rather well. I've never seen one before.
It's kind of like a mushroom in construction, but with the outer top casing all fishified.  ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Evolution inspired by the Mdina seahorse?  ;D

I thought fish came before horses. At least they did, according to Darwin. ;D 
Perhaps Maltese glass knows history better than the percieved wisdom available to the rest of us, though?  ;)
