More Description

Gene Florence is America's foremost authority on collectible glassware made from the 1920s through the 1970s, authoring several titles on the subject of glass that have sold well over 2,000,000 copies. One of the titles that has helped to make up this remarkable total is Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era. This title is released every other year, adding hundreds of new photographs, listings, and updated values. This book features the handmade and acid-etched glassware that was sold in department and jewelry stores from the Depression era through the 1950s, as opposed to the dimestore and giveaway glass that is so well-known as Depression glass. As always, Florence has totally revised his Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era to present this new eighth edition. He has added many new discoveries, several new patterns, and re-photographed over 50 percent of the previous book. Large, full-color group settings are included for each of the over 90 patterns, as well as close-ups to show the pattern details when necessary. The famous glassmakers presented include Fostoria, Cambridge, Heisey, Tiffin, imperial, Duncan & Miller, U.S. Glass, and Paden City. In addition to his interesting discussion of each pattern, Florence provides a list of all known pieces, with colors and measurements, along with current values. Due to its wealth of information and superb photography, which has added to its popularity among collectors, this book will once again prove to be one of our bestsellers.
