I live on an island off of Vancouver Island and have been finding a lot of cool pieces. How do you identify pieces that have clear markings? Thank you!

Could be privacy glass
by: Ethan

I found some glass similar to this at Playa Capitolio in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and identified mine as privacy glass from a window. The pattern of mine was called forentine.

Hi, it depends on what markings there are. There were so many millions of bottles made over the years that, unfortunately, a large number of markings go unidentified. Thanks for the question!
