Glass Paperweights / Re: Lotsa crosses paperweight
« Last post by Anne on January 19, 2019, 08:08:14 PM »
It looks like a variant on the Jerusalem or Crusader's Cross which has the four smaller crosses but normally has flat ends on the arms of the main cross, whereas yours has buttoned ends like the Cross of Lazarus but that doesn't usually have the smaller crosses.  My gut-feeling is that yours may be a souvenir brought back from a pilgrimage or visit to the Holy Land.  Interesting piece!

More on crosses here which might give you some leads... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_cross_variants

Glass / Re: Blenko/Kosta Boda/Iitala? And what are they for?

Thanks for your understanding, and we share your frustration re bad and broken links. If you can gain permission from the seller that would be super, thank you.  Selling sites images often vanish after a while which does leave us in the soup.  One of the ways we have tried to address this is by creating albums of labels from sources which have given their consent to use them and we archive these onto our sister site GlassGallery (http://www.glassphotographs.com/). You will also find various collections based on areas of interest where members have been collecting and curating images on a theme, as ongoing works in progress.  You are most welcome to get involved in this if you'd like to do so.

If you are willing to go to those lengths, it would be very much appreciated. ;D
Is is only really fair for the seller to get a little bit of publicity for providing them. :)

I don't think we've got too many examples of Japanese labels yet.

Eventually,  though, it will just become another bad link. I have no issues with getting permission to use the images. The style of the label may some day aid in identifying the maker.

A direct link to the sale would have been fine. :)
That way the copyright is still with the owner, and they get the bonus of a bit of advertising.

Totally understand. I have a masters in library and information science, so understand copyright, fair use, etc. I sent the Etsy seller an email requesting permission to use their images. I also mentioned that I would include a link to their auction, which would benefit them. If they don't respond today, I'll remove the images. If they give permission, would the board want me to forward their email?

It's a legal matter for the board because of copyright.
We always prefer images which are owned by the person who posts them, and like them posted directly to the board, rather than hosted elsewhere, because images elsewhere do vanish.

But it is difficult when you need to illustrate something and don't have an example in your possession to show.

Glass / Re: Monart? Strawberry milkshake colour
« Last post by chopin-liszt on January 19, 2019, 05:50:07 PM »
 :) Your pics don't blow up terribly well. Are there haloes of solid colour around the bubbles?
It has the look of Nazeing to me. I really don't think it's Monart, sorry.
