This “red cut to clear” glass bowl appeals to many collectors.


    ‘Red cut to clear’ glass appeals to many collectors

    Q: I have a beautiful glass bowl that measures 93/8 by 6 inches across and 33/4 inches deep. There are no seams or trademarks. Can you tell me how old it is and the approximate value? I know it came from Germany and is at least 70 years old.

High-efficiency toilet technology has come a long way in 20 years. This Kohler Highline Comfort Height two-piece toilet utilizes modern flushing technology.

    New high efficiency toilet can flush away your frustrations

    Q: I enjoy reading your column and need advice on what to do with my present slow-flushing toilet. It was one of the early model water-conserving toilets from about 20 years ago and we have never been happy with it. My aggravation is compounded by the fact that I have my own well water system with a good supply of water. Is there any way I can modify this toilet to flush with more power? If not, what solution do you recommend for my toilet frustrations?
