This little book is small enough to tote and complete enough to be useful when you are out looking for finds! Color photographs are of high quality. It does contain some price reference material and basics on pattern manufacturer, color and years produced. It does not contain anything else regarding the history of each pattern.There is a section on pattern reproductions in the back which contains useful alerts. The collector will want other of Gene Florence's more exhaustive references but this is the one you will use most frequently.
This book is the perfect size to carry with you whenever you are snooping around antique or junk stores. It shows pictures of the glassware along with the prices on the same page - very helpful! An excellent addition to any library.
This book sure has helped me! The patterns are listed alphabetically and each page is a new pattern with a color photo on top showing several of the pieces. The page tells you what colors each pattern came in, which once helped me identify a reproduction. There is also a listing of the pieces made and what their current values are. There is a section in the back (22 pages) that discusses how to identify reproduction pieces of certain patterns. The only thing that would help me more in this book is if they had included some kind of cross-reference so that you could quickly find your pattern based on its characteristics. As it is now, you either have to know its name or just thumb through the whole book. Well worth the money even to a beginner like me.
The book, I assume,is great. I just ordered the wrong book and it didn't have the information in it that I needed to find. The delivery of the book was very speedy though. Thanks anyway.
