Other British Glass Identification Guide + Gallery

Back to Glass Encyclopedia Home

This section of the encyclopedia is for "other" British glass. Some of these items we have no idea about, others we might have a good idea who the maker could be, but are not 100% sure. Some we may be able to identify, but don't yet have their own section in our encyclopedia. If anyone out there can confirm the manufacturer of any of the unidentified items, please let us know, then we can move them to the relevant section of the encyclopedia.
