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.

...perhaps a test or a prototype. It would be so great to know how it got into the marketplace.


Usual route is to clear out the stores every now and then, via the factory shop. Or of course via the glassmakers themselves.

The French output on Glass research is usually of a high standard but not widely accessible, I assume there are weight societies in France?

Yes, absolutely. One would think there are writers on glass and a number of societies. There certainly are collectors. There only seem to be a few GMB members from France. Perhaps there's a French glass board on the web. Of course, there's that pesky language barrier. I know there are books in French on presse-papiers. I bought an old one a few years ago on eBay. Approximately $15 USD. Published in the 1940s. It had a lot of photographs and even a long section in English, although most of it was in French.

Not really. Since most words have specific meanings, the word "side" means something different from top and bottom. Top and bottom can't be sides; they are, well gosh - top and bottom.  :wink:
