USEFUL GLASS LINKS
I have provided a short review of each site listed below
I hope you find these links to glass related sites to be useful
THE GLASS MUSEUM ON LINE

A major glass site on the web, Angela Bowey's site in New Zealand has photographs
and explanations of all types of glass, links to many other useful glass sites and a glass
forum. This is definitely one site that all glass collectors and dealers should bookmark.
THE GLASS ENCYCLOPEDIA

Angela Bowey's other glass site, The Glass Encyclopedia is intended to be the ultimate
reference source on glass. It covers a very wide variety of glass related topics that are
updated regularly, building up to a fully comprehensive glass encyclopedia on-line.
THE CLOUD GLASS REFERENCE SITE

The is the first web site dedicated to providing a reference source for all matters relating to the collection
of Cloud Glass. With numerous photographs and detailed text, this site is a superb source of information
on Davidson's Cloud Glass and Cloud Glass in general - a highly recommended glass web site.
CARNIVAL GLASS. NET

Glen and Stephen Thistlewood invite you to visit their site to find out more about the magic, the mysteries and the beauty of Carnival Glass. If you can't find the answer to your question on the site, you may contact them.
THE NATIONAL MILK GLASS COLLECTORS SOCIETY

This is an American web site which has been set up to promote the study, appreciation, and preservation of
opaque glass, popularly called "Milk Glass" and is an excellent reference site for all milk glass collectors.
THE FLOWER FROG GAZETTE

This is a very informative American site for collector of Flower Frogs and is a web revival of The Flower
Frog Gazette. The original Gazette was produced quarterly from 1984-1989 and helped to unite a
small group of collectors interested in learning about and sharing information on flower frogs.
( The owner of this site is also the author of the flower frogs book shown on my Recommended Glass Books page )
AMERICAN GLASS FIGURAL FLOWER FROGS

This is an excellent page on Linda and David Adams' glass site in the USA that helps you to identify
Cambridge Glass Figural Flower Frogs, as well as some frogs manufactured by other companies.
There are photographs of the glass flower frogs with detailed descriptions. A very nice site to visit.
FROGGIE B's FLOWER FROGS

This is Miles & Marcia Bradley's site in the USA that has photographs of their extensive collection of over
600 flower frogs. There are photographs of glass flower frogs and also links to other flower frog related sites.

antique, vintage and unusual eyebaths. Plus many more related items, such as eyewash bottles, eye
remedies, advertising material, historical items, written articles and other relevant printed material.
YSART GLASS

An excellent and informative site for anyone interested in the glass made by the Ysart family, in Perth,
Scotland, from 1922. To help learn about Ysart glass and appreciate its place in history, this web site also
incorporates additional information on similar and related products such as Monart, Vasart and Strathearn.
PRESSGLAS-KORRESPONDENZ

This is Siegmar Geiselberger's excellent pressed glass site in Germany. There are interesting articles
about glass (In German) which are illustrated with superb photographs, some of which are taken
from the original catalogues of glass makers such as Walther. This site is well worth a visit.
ARNOLD BECKER'S GLASS

This is Arnold Becker's glass site in Germany. He has been a collector of pressed glass for 25 years,
during which time he has amassed a collection of over 700 pieces. Photographs of these beautiful
pieces are displayed on the site which makes it a great site for any pressed glass collector to visit.
THE GLASS MARKS DICTIONARY

This is a very useful American site with over 300 illustrations of makers marks found on glass.
I have personally found the dictionary very helpful in identifying American glass that I have
found in the UK such as that made by Heisey, Libbey and other American glass manufacturers.
SPARKLE PLENTY GLASSWARE

Sparkle Plenty Glassware is one of the Internet's first and largest single owner glass sites - established online in 1995.
A very large and informative site with thousands of photos and features such as Depression Glass Oddities & Rarities,
DG in Advertising and a number of Reproduction Alerts. A must stop for any serious depression glass collector.


The VGCI is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1998 to educate and unify Vaseline Glass
collectors everywhere. There is a lot of information including superb photo galleries of vaseline glass
(or uranium glass as it is known in the UK) plus a guide to it's identification. I recommend a visit to this site
KEN TOMABECHI'S URANIUM GLASS GALLERY

The Uranium Glass Gallery by Ken Tomabechi in Japan has an explanation of what uranium glass is, superb photo galleries of uranium glass and a list of the world's museums where uranium glass can be seen. A nice site for a visit.
B. L. ZEBUB'S POT

This is an unusual glass related web site, in that the images of Art Deco glass items are 3D computer
models created by Lee Tanner in the UK. He has skillfully drawn many of the glass pieces produced
in the 1930's by English glassmakers such as Davidson and Bagley. This is quite a unique web site.
NATIONAL GLASS COLLECTORS FAIR (UK) WEBSITE

The popular National Glass Collectors Fair is held twice a year at the National Motorcycle Museum in
Solihull, near to the city of Birmingham in the West Midlands, England. First established in 1991, it
currently has more than 100 exhibitors who offer a wide variety of glass from throughout the ages.

Art glass has been made on the islands of Murano for over 500 years. This site details the history of
Murano glass, it's birth, rise to prominence, decline and current revival. It also has profiles of past and
present Murano glassmakers and a glossary of the Common Terms and Techniques in Murano Glass.

The Rossella Junck Gallery in Venice specialises in authentic Murano glass from the 18th to the 20th century.
The site has photos of Murano glass dating from the 18th century up to the present day and images of historical documents from the 19th century to the early 20th century.  In my opinion it is a very nice glass site for a visit.
