    Great to see your site. Also great to see that you make references to the books by two fellow collectors with whom we head the honour to exhibit some of our roman objects in the exhibition in Heerlen last year.
    We have a bowl in our collection which is somewhat akin to yours. Don’t know how to mail a picture through this medium, but am glad to share.

      We became aware of this wonderful glass show at Heerlen by someone contacting us through our blog. As a result we were able to get the glass collection catalogues of your fellow collectors.
