Summary

Summary

American pressed glass, which was at its zenith in the 1870s, entails hundreds of patterns and dozens of shapes with elaborate geometric, animal, fruit, and floral designs. Available in crystal and sparkling colors, this collectible glassware flourished until the end of the 1920s when a national depression surfaced and a new glass became the norm. This value guide showcases the exquisite patterns and beautiful colors of the quality pressed glass that was produced for 60 years in America. With over 1,000 color photographs, current values, and detailed descriptions, this book is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also historically educational.
