Glass Encyclopedia



The Glass Encyclopedia is a great reference source on glass, covering a very 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. Hope you enjoy it.

Here are some examples included in The Glass Encyclopedia. A page about Dartington Glass and a related page about Frank Thrower and his designs . Also a page about Nazeing glass, one of the very few English glassworks still operating today, and still family-owned. There is also a page on Komaromy glass, an Hungarian who immigrated into Britain in the mid 1930s and made beautiful, delicate glass figurines until 1975. Also a page of information about the glass of August Walther & Sohne, one of the great art deco glassworks of the 1930s. And there is a page about the glass of STS Abel of Zagreb, a Jugoslavian glassworks which produced some beautiful glass in the art deco period. Hope you will find these interesting and useful.



Market Intelligence Page

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


1: Collectors Search First of all you can 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 museum 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).
