Summary

Summary

This eleventh edition on elegant glassware holds more than 100 new photographs, listings, and updated values. Featured is the handmade and acid-etched glassware that was sold in department and jewelry stores from the Depression era through the 1950s, not the dimestore and giveaway items known as Depression glass. As always, glassware authorities Gene and Cathy Florence have added many new discoveries, 12 additional patterns, and re-photographed many items from the previous books. Large group settings are included for each of the more than 100 patterns, as well as close-ups to show pattern details. The famous glassmakers presented include Fenton, Cambridge, Heisey, Tiffin, Imperial, Duncan & Miller, U.S. Glass, and Paden City. The Florences provide a list of all known pieces, with colors and measurements, along with 2005 values.
