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.
To help you find the most useful books we have put together "book-seek.com"

Glass / Re: Uranium, frosted, moulded bowl / dish. ID help.
« Last post by Mosquito on Today at 03:33:58 AM »
Here's the bowl and figure in the 1932 Markhbeinn catalogue via Glas-musterbuch.de  :
http://glas-musterbuch.de/Markhbeinn-1932.19+B6YmFja1BJRD0xOSZwcm9kdWN0SUQ9NjYzJmRldGFpbD0_.0.html
It's listed as number 2317. Several other pieces on the page are Czech, mostly from Inwald or Feigl & Morawetz, Libochovice. I also spotted a Reich vase elsewhere in the catalogue. Interestingly Markhbeinn appear to have used the original manufacturer's catalogue numbers rather than their own system, at least in the case of the Inwald and Reich patterns they offered.

Midsummer Glass operated for a short time in the 1980s. A board search will give you a bit more info, but there isn't much

Very nice weights John , would you know approximately the age of my weight ? as information is a bit thin on the ground.

I have the identical one, Anne, in a box which is labelled. It is on the board somewhere.
The label says, 'Crescent Glass - Black Country Museum'

Glass / Re: Nice White Enameled Vase with Green Inside ?
« Last post by Lustrousstone on Yesterday at 06:36:40 PM »
I don't think it's uranium glass. I also think it's perhaps from the 1960s/70s from the print
