Thank you, Christine :D  Some fascinating information there!  Especially the words describing faults in glass!  I expect to see far more accurate information about the nature of damage in people's ebay descriptions from now on  >:D  :24:

Some of the terms took me back to our visit to St. Helen's World of Glass, Christine - memories of which bring the terms to life.
There are also a good few words which could be used as expletives...

thanks very much indeed - this will be studied.

It also states, quite unambiguously, that a pontil is an iron rod.

thank you Christine  -  enormously valuable :)   I did toy with the idea of printing it off at work today - but was a little busy.   But when I get back to the office after Christmas, well...............

The original link is dead but I've tracked down a copy of the Glossary PDF via the Way Back Machine on archive.org - this link (https://web.archive.org/web/20101224211618/http://www.museumoflondonarchaeology.org.uk/NR/rdonlyres/FCBB7609-4C5A-48A1-9082-F42EBA062F4B/0/post92molglass_glos.pdf) should give you a PDF download of the file.
