Old Time Glass is the end result of an idea that started many years ago. I have always loved old glass, china, and antiques of any kind really! So I started gathering inventory that would eventually end up on the pages that you see today on this site. Of course, much research is needed for accuracy and authenticity, and I do my best to provide both, to the best of my knowledge. I have invested in many reference books and materials to provide the most detailed information that I can provide to you, but I have also spent a lot of time on other websites that have provided me with details not found otherwise. I would like to take a moment to acknowledge these sites, and provide a link to you as well, to do your own research, if so desired!
Glass Etch and Pattern Gallery: An excellent resource and well thought out gallery.
Glass Lovers Glass Database: A vast resource of patterns and company history
Indiana Glass: A great help in old and newer Indiana Glass patterns.
David Doty’s Carnival Glass Website: All you need to know about Carnival Glass.
Replacements: A fantastic resource for old to contemporary china and glassware.
Gotheborg.com: A clear and detailed guide to Japanese and Chinese porcelain marks.
I’m sure this list will grow as my inventory grows. I wanted to acknowledge these groups for making my research easier, and for being able to provide you with the knowledge gathered so carefully by the groups mentioned above. They are providing such important history to these precious items made so long ago!
