Fostoria was a most remarkable glassd company and George Sakier(1897-1988) was a most remarkable designer of Fostoria glass. For over fifty years, through the Great Depression, Sakier sent classic and modern designs to Moundsville, West Virginia, where millions of delightful glass objects were produced. They appear here in profusion.
The book includes a throughly researched text about the man and his art(paintings, industrial designs and glass), as well as hundreds of brilliant color photographs of thousands of Fostoria glass items of many patterns and Sakier's fascinating oil painting landscapes. Sakier's Fostoria glass is American Art Deco design and the book is a fine resource for glass collectors.
