LET US ENTERTAIN YOU - Fieldings Friday Fun Quiz - Glass-tastic - UPDATED WITH THE WINNER AND ANSWERS
With a sale on the horizon we've been busy this week at Fieldings looking after clients and dealing with all the preparations for the auction. Friday is now here so its time to call an end to another week and settle down with our quiz!

Here at Fieldings Auctioneers we pride ourselves on our glass knowledge! Located in Stourbridge, the historic heart of the British glass industry, glass is at the heart of our business too. Fieldings are proud to sell more glass than any other saleroom in the country and over the years we have handled tens of thousands of pieces! From elegant period examples to bold contemporary creations theres no end to the array of glass that has passed through our hands. Will is passionate about this most magical of materials and loves nothing more than finding rare and exciting pieces for collectors around the world.
This week we've dug down in to our archives and own collections to test your knowledge on this wonderfully diverse subject, filled with history, skill and stunning design! Can you identify the makers, name techniques, date and even price some of the wonderful pieces we've found to challenge you this week?
Once again there are 12 questions each with a bonus point so theres a possible 24 points up for grabs in this weeks fun Friday night quiz!
And to encourage you all we're going to offer up a little prize for the winner! There'll be a signed copy of one of Wills books for the person with the highest score, you can choose which book you'd like. In the event of a tie we'll draw the winners name out the hat.
