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.

It appears to me to be emulating the Japanese globe/ Fish vase construction of decor - the side parts appearing to have come from a dipping and then crossing-over of the trail left - except that it appears to have been "dipped" in something akin to stained glass... I'm so green here I'm getting mouldy:P

Thanks for taking a look at the pics Sue, certainly a slightly unusual example, seems to bear similarities to a few different globes, but all rolled into one!
