Great vocabulary words for the glass collector

Over time, you will pick up quite a few words that describe what a piece is.  There are even times they apply to how a piece is made.  Here are some words that apply to the glassware field:

Chop Plate – this is a large, flat serving plate.  This piece is also sometimes called a salver.

Cane –this is a glass rod that’s used in glassmaking to produce effects like twisted filigree or even marbles.

Sickness – this refers to a cloudy haze that’s in glass vessels such as vases, decanters bottles, and even tumblers.  This can be something as simple as hard water deposits.

So what kind of fun words have you heard?
