Fostoria is one of the best known and most admired names in American glass. Probably more brides and homemakers have received gifts and purchased glass made at the Fostoria factory in Moundsville, West Virginia than from any other glass company. This is the first book to present all of this fascinating and highly collectible glass through hundreds of color photographs. Pieces featured range from rarely seen examples of Victorian pattern glass from the early years in Fostoria, Ohio through the introduction of color, the popular American and Coin patterns, to the scarce and unusual, even unique, items. Any collector, dealer, or student of American glass will delight in the beautiful glassware presented here.
In addition to more than 400 beautiful color photographs of Fostoria objects with detailed captions, the book contains labels, color catalog pages, an illustrated styles chart with over 1000 entries, a chronology, index and updated values. The first to bring all this information together, this book will fascinate and inform the advanced collector as well as the beginner.
