Welcome to Glass Heaven
Where we collect glass images for you
WHO ARE WE ?
Glass Lovers Glass Database is a group of glass collectors, sellers, authors and researchers, from novice to expert that have joined together to produce this database.
Glass Lovers Glass Database Yahoo members collect, catalog and research glass images and descriptions and put them into a database. That's all the glass we identify from either our Yahoo Group or our Forum plus all the glass from private collections where images are donated---every country, company and pattern we can find.
The database is set-up in albums in the following order: Country, Company, Pattern, and then multiple views, when possible, of each piece offered by the respective company in that pattern. We also provide summaries in each album. That means you'll get valuable data about your piece of glass; dates, dimensions, colors that were available, fakes, reproductions, etc.
We are also working on a glossary that includes pic examples. Mike Wasser has generously contributed his "Glass Marks" pic images that were located on Ebay. We're constantly adding to this and are including labels also. Other folders you'll find are "Glass Graphics". This folder includes tools used in the trade, glass processes, pattern comparisons, glass part comparisons and so on. For example, a collage of different style stems and how they're named; a pic of what tools are used to produce a given formation on a piece of glass, etc. We're hoping to include video within this section in the future. We're also working on a place for member to sell their glass.
Our main page is located at Main Portal. All of our services are free.
We have expert glass members ranging many eras and companies. Everyone is friendly, helpful, driven and passionate about cataloging and identifying glassware.
Some of our expert categories are ABCG, EAPG, Black Glass, Vaseline Glass, Anchor Hocking, Fenton, Candlewick, Carnival Glass, Tiara, Westmoreland, Milk Glass etc. etc. Many of these people are authors or have been assisting people with glass identification on the net for years. Most have studied glass for many years or their entire lifetime.
But, we're also an "eclectic" group. Some members are not experts and join just to contribute images in exchange for the valuable resources the group has to offer. Some members do not care to share their images but have expertise in a particular field of glass and their expertise is invaluable to the group. Never be intimidated by this group but you will certainly be in awe of the collection of knowledge this great group of people has amassed.
Our group moto is: "No question is too simple or complicated. None of us will ever know everything about glass, considering the magnitude of the topic, we will all forever be students."
Our database is set up in folders and sub-folders that are by country, company and pattern.
As of June 3, 2010, we're over 18,000 images logged into the database.
Feel free to join all the various venues of Glass Lovers Glass Database. Dive right in, peruse our database, add to it, and ask questions.
We are forever dedicated to the proper identification and assemblage of glass photo images by country, company and pattern from the past to the present.
