Glass Museum News

The Glass Museum aims to bring you in-depth articles about a wide range of glass. The photograph above is from Tom Karman's article "Charles Schneider: Art Deco Glass Genius". There is a list, lower down this page, of the articles on glass offered by the Glass Museum.

Glass Encyclopedia News

The Glass Encyclopedia is a reference source on glass, covering a broad list of types of glass. Each topic has its own page with a definition of the topic, interesting background and history, pictures, references to other on-line sources and articles, and suggested books on the topic. The Glass Enyclopedia is currently being upgraded page by page, to update the links and enhance the text. By incorporating the detailed articles from the Glass Museum the Glass Encyclopedia is changing from a source of information to a treasure trove of knowledge.

Here are some examples of the updated pages. Caithness Glass now has a short summary of the Caithness story followed by a detailed article by Rhona Burns and Angela Bowey. Rhona was the Marketing Executive with Caithness Glass Ltd in their heydays when they had their own Marketing Executive, and Angela is a researcher and author. The article covers the history of the company, the people who worked there, and the beautiful glass they created (with lots of pictures).

Schneider glass is another page which has just been updated with superb pictures and text written by Thomas Karman for the Glass Museum. Thomas is a long-time collector, writer, and consultant on Schneider glass. The pages on Charder Glass and Le Verre Francais have also been updated, as both those names were used by Schneider for their glass.

The Glass Encyclopedia page on Cast Glass has been enhanced by the addition of an article about Shona Firman and her cast glass. And the page on Glass Bottles has three new sections, Walt Rigling's article on Apothecary Vials, and David Barker's article about English Apothecary Vials, plus Angela Bowey's article on the history of glass bottles in New Zealand.

I hope sincerely that you think the enhanced web pages are worth the effort.


Market Intelligence Page

Glass-Seek.com is a page you can use in several interesting ways, so we hope you will explore and enjoy it.


1: Collectors Search - have a look at the kind of glass you sometimes buy, either because you are a collectors or a dealer. Its always interesting to see what others are selling and you might find that piece you have been looking for, or maybe come across a real bargain.

2: Market Intelligence The items and prices asked in on-line auctions give you an overview of the market. What items are selling well, and for what prices? You can identify trends, learn how the best sellers present their items for sale, and recognise the kinds of items that are in scarce supply or good value.

3: Relax and enjoy Another way to use this page is to imagine it is your personal studio of beautiful glass, where you can wander and admire some amazing creations. And every time you visit there may be new things you have not seen. These are my personal favourites, way beyond my means but I can still dream: Galle, Tiffany Favrile, Thomas Webb, Paul Stankard, Victor Trabucco, Galle, Venini.

I do hope you enjoy our Market Intelligence Page (click here).
