Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era

I found this book very interesting and was able to identify glassware not found in other books. Great for reference, good pictures and more glass makers. Great Book.

Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era

I was already familiar with the publication, so I knew what to expect. That's why I purchased it.

This book has already paid for its self.

This book is a little large to be carrying around, however I still do carry it to places that I already know will have the pattern I am looking for. The forward describes "Elegant" glassware as handmade and acid etched glassware that was sold by department and jewelry stores during the Depression era through the 1950's, differentiating it from the dime store and giveaway glass that has become known as Depression glass. The word "Elegant" has become "official" nomenclature among today's dealers for designating handmade glass. It is well organized with the glass patterns in alphabetical order and the prices in columns by color of glass. Most of the pictures are color and have good enough definition to identify what you are looking at. There are a contents by pattern and a contents by company.

Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era

This is a beautiful book. Mr. Florence out-did himself with this one! It is so easy to read, is laid out so beautifully, the information is complete and the photography is outstanding. I respect Gene Florence's expertise and would make this my "Bible" for information on Elegant Glassware.
