I personally collect Czech perfume bottles and would have liked to see more in this book, but this book is about several types of Czech glassware. That said - it still had lots of perfume bottles that I haven't seen in other books, so it is a good book to have.
This book presents color photos of 763 pieces of glassware, pottery, porcelain, and semi porcelain produced in Czechoslovakia between 1918 and 1938. The pieces are arranged in broad categories: cased art glass, candy baskets, perfume bottles and puff boxes, etc. There is also some general information on marks and color rarity ratings.However, the pieces are presented only with very general descriptions (i.e., 5 Â¾", Blue, Two Piece Bottle). There is no information about the manufacturer, the marks, possible production dates, etc. And there are no close-ups to see the quality of the workmanship. It is virtually impossible to use the pieces displayed in this book to identify the origin of other pieces of Czechoslovakian glass or pottery.
Perfect reference for the subject - would recommend.
Being a purfume bottle collecter for a few years, I only recommend this book for the beginnerfrom chesterland, Ohio
