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.

I have recently bought a miniature clear crystal vase with an opaque rose on the top. It stands about 5cm tall. The maker's mark on the underside looks like a chain link or slightly disfigured number 8. Please can anyone identify it.  :)

It's been that way in STEM subjects for about the last 30 years.
Work was where first I got addicted to research. ;)

more re: poss.  Václav Zajíc  "Město"  [= City/Town] (Sklo Union platter)

http://www.cs-sklo.cz/ceskoslovenskesklo/25-STARE-CLANKY-OLD-ARTICLES/1023-Vaclav-Zajic

[Google translation of extract] "The name of Václav Zajíc is mainly associated with Libochovické pressed glass, its [his?]  angular vase with roses (20240) belongs among the worshiped patterns of collectors of pressed glass, as well as dishes, bowls and plates pressed without a ring, for example, the "City" (3559)"  [photo shows example, - unfortunately rather blurred]
[- is "3559" the pattern number?, - are there any old trade catalogues available which might show the design and available colours?]

Picclick UK (same eBay result as previous posting but shows all photos together):

I know.
Bad situation for the Arts (and STEM going the same way).

It's a pipe dream job nowadays. You'd spend every waking moment filling in grant applications trying to get funding, not actually getting to do any work. :'(

I had wondered if they did that.
Do we actually know if they changed from using the chloride to the nitrate when making yellows and greens and using that with blues, instead of the reds it was originally used with, for making browns?
Is that something that's now common knowledge, somewhere else?

Is silver nitrate cheaper than silver chloride? I never encountered the chloride, but I did use silver nitrate in labs. It burned holes in everything.  ;D
