This book is definately for anyone who is looking for a wealth of information about novelty salt and pepper shakers. Since this book was published in 1990, the values may not be as up to date as later books, but I have yet to see another shaker book with so much other information about the shakers themselves. The shakers are photographed in related groups sitting on 4-5 glass shelves with a solid-colored background. The pictures are excellent. The entire first page of each section contains a detailed description of the shakers pictured with the values for each listed at the bottom of the page. The description are truly wonderful and must have been thoroughly researched. That is the best part of this book. Ms. Davern talks about the background of many of the shakers as well as of the company that made them. She also mentions other related shakers that are not pictured in some cases. There are very few collectible salt and pepper shaker books that one can truly say is enjoyable reading. However, this is a wonderful book to just sit and read through due to Ms. Davern's descriptions, personal views, and beautiful pictures. This book is a must for any novelty salt and pepper shaker collector.
This is my favorite book on salt & pepper shakers, and I have quite a few! There are so many sets pictured, I keep finding a set I hadn't seen before every time I look through this book. The pictures are great, as are the descriptions! Definitely recommend!
A while ago my mother passed away. When she did I found myself the new owner of 500 sets of Salt and Pepper shakers.Knowing nothing about most of them, and since a great deal of them were antiques, from other countrys and also some being VERY old, I needed abook to rely on and to try and sort out what I had. Well this book was just what I was looking for & what I needed. It came in extremly valuable. Many Thanks
Wonderful book for the novice collector or advanced collector. Pictures are very professionally done, as well as the write-ups. Great book of information.
The book was exactly as described, arrived on time and was definitely worth the price I paid. Thank you seller.
