The monetary valuations of Salt & Pepper Shakers in this book are virtually useless to either a collector or seller. I have never seen a book so totally unresearched on both pricing and product description. The majority of the photos of the S&P's do not describe the material utilized in their construction, so one is left wondering if they are looking at plastic, metal or other material.No person interested in Salt & Pepper collecting should buy this as their first book. If you do, you'll be in for a big surprise when you try to buy an S&P that has been valued in this book for $12, but is belling for $48.For the more seasoned collector, it does have some decent pictures, but is more or less a rehash of better produced S&P Collecting books.If you've been collecting S&P's for over 6 months, you'll realize that this is a piece of utter tripe; execpt for the photos of the S&P's.
I almost didn't buy this book since the reviews were fairly low, but thumbed through it twice upon receiving it...I think it one of the best books in my collection. It covers most materials used in making S&Ps, identifies a lot of the makers, (Shawnee, Occupied Japan, Hazel Atlas, etc.), the photography is good, & I'm very pleased with the information it has given me. I know it will become a well thumbed book for searching.
The book was in perfect shape, very well packaged, and arrived much earlier than expected. It was a Christmas present for our daughter who collects salt and pepper shakers. She absolutely loved it. Went through it right away to see how many sets she had that were featured in the book. Very, very happy with purchase.
As a collector I have really enjoyed seeing the wide variety of salt and pepper shakers listed and displayed in this book. The values listed are a good guideline to what these are worth to other collectors.
Book was a big hit with a growing collector - some shaker's categories could be expanded upon with more detail and photos - but overall a success...
This is a great reference for the collector or anyone who just likes old salt and pepper shakers as I do. It has lots of pictures and information about the makers. What a dizzying array!
Very nice book. plenty of nice colored pics and a large number of s/p shakers pictured in this book. i would deal with any of the people that i recieved books from.
A great number of photographs and guidelines for the salt and pepper collector or estate enthusiast! I have used it many times for referencing items for resale.
