This beautifully illustrated reference work features hundreds of elegant American glass forms in a wide spectrum of colors, shapes, and etchings of 98 different patterns, made by preeminent manufacturers, including Cambridge, Heisey, Imperial, Paden City, and New Martinsville. They date from 1915, when Fostoria American was introduced, to the 1990s, when Fenton’s Cranberry Opalescent Hobnail was first offered. The picture captions include dates of production and pattern and etching numbers, plus original company colors. Full lines of dinnerware and their companion patterns are listed along with bedroom, bath, and decorating pieces, along with information gathered from original catalogs and reprints, glass club newsletters, company brochures, trade journals, company advertising, and from many dedicated dealers and collectors. This book is an essential guide to American elegant glass.
