The Answer: Where was Harry Thompson' Glass Made

On feb 6 we showed photos of glass made for Harry Thompson (return to this blog post to see the glass).
We were sent this copy of Dean Six's book with photos and descriptions of glass similar to the glass in the Harry Thompson photo with birds and dogs. Mystery solved. Thank you. As in the X FILE series. The answers are OUT THERE! We just have to find them. Actually many of you KNOW the answers, some of us are still seeking answers, and many of us are just now learning about the questions...but I am grateful daily to you . . . each you .... my teachers. . my guides in the world of West Virginia Glass. hjh note: Buying a good set of reference books should probably come before purchasing glass.
