I was wondering if anyone has any good resources for finding out information regarding Crystal Glasses. I recently received my family's crystal set and would like to find out more information on the history of it. I believe it came over from England.
Are there any maker’s marks on it? You can go to your local bookstore and find all kinds of guides on crystal glasses. Just look in the collectibles section.
You can also find crystal glass guides in the Antique section of the stores too.
You can also try your public library.
If all else fails you can go to antique shops and ask around (they might even let you use one of their books)
There are a few good sites that will indentify glass patterns if you cant find a stamp or mark on the piece. I used to sell depression glass and you need to google till you find a site that goes over patterns.
