Do you have glass that is puzzling you? Maybe a special piece you got from family that you would like to know more about? Or maybe you have one goblet from your aunt and you’d really like a second?
I love glass and have a good library of books and have seen many patterns. If you would like help I am always willing to try to identify your glass. Here’s how to ask for help.
- Go to my Facebook page at www.DepressionGlassFun.com.
- You can post as many pictures there as you like.
- For best results, try to get a good close up picture of the design. This goblet from George G was nice and clear.
- George posted a good side view of his tumbler too. The side views are helpful when the shape is a little unusual.
You will need to have a Facebook account to do this. If you want to drop me a note asking for help you are welcome to, but it’s not necessary. I check Facebook for people’s photos every day. If you would like to provide more information, like how you got the piece, or why you are interested, that would be great. I like to read about others’ glass.
I will take a look and identify if I can. Sometimes a piece is familiar and you’ll get an immediate answer; sometimes I need to look up something, and sadly often times I simply don’t recognize the piece. I will let you know what I can.
Last step is one I almost hate to mention. For some reason the last time I said this a couple people were horribly offended. The last step? A simple “thank you” comment. About half the people I help say thanks and with the other half I never know whether they even saw my answer.
Here’s how not to ask for help.
- Please do not send me pictures via email. I do not accept attachments.
- Please don’t try to describe the glass; a picture is worth many thousands of words!
I’ll be glad to help you if you post a photo on Facebook.
