Gene and Cathy Florence, the foremost authorities on glassware, have produced a revamped edition of Collectible Glassware from the 40s, 50s, and 60s. Covering collectible glassware made after the Depression era, this is the only book available that deals exclusively with the handmade and mass-produced glassware from this period. It is completely updated, featuring many original company catalog pages and eight new patterns - making a total of 128 patterns from Anniversary to Yorktown, with many of the most popular Fire-King patterns in between. Each pattern is alphabetically listed, all known pieces in each pattern are described and priced, and 370 gorgeous color photographs showcase both common and very rare pieces. In addition, for the first time, all the pieces in the photographs are identified and cross-referenced with their listings. The Florences' descriptive text offers insight into and evaluations of each pattern's history, popularity, and value on today's exciting collectibles market. 2006 values.
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
This book has been very handy for me! I go to antique stores all the time and it helps with identification.

Gene Florence has soooo much knowledge that he has shared in his books. This book is particularly helpful as it has many of the common items you would see at flea markets, garage sales and estate auctions. The book is a bit cumbersome to take with, but it is an excellent reference to have for learning or catching up on the current buys. If you are a collector... a must have!
