Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The manufacture of cut glass in America stems from a history that reaches back to ancient Egypt, while engraved glass was known in classical Rome. In this excellent new edition of a classic work, the author traces the American phases of this fascinating history by describing the products of major and minor manufacturers. This book has been established as the "bible" in this field, and the addition of 150 new photos and fully updated text and pricing information make this edition the best yet. Glass collectors will treasure this unequalled reference.

Book News Annotation:

A revision of the Schiffer edition of 1967 (earlier editions go back to 1965) under the title American Cut and Engraved Glass. Arranged by glass company, the entries are abundantly illustrated with photos (of fair definition: cut glass is famously tough to photograph) and generally good line drawings taken from original catalogs. Most illustrations include an estimated retail price. Necessary for the collector.
