The authors have written extensively about Depression glass collecting and some of the hardcovers are quite specific and weighty. Collectors and libraries seeking more affordable, toteable and general values and identification guides will find the 16th updated edition of Pocket Guide to Depression Glass & More 1920s-1960s an excellent pick. It pairs an organization by maker with color photos of typical glassware lines, and the latest prices arranged by glassware color. Perfect for a flea-market tote.
When I go antiquing, I like to have the latest edition of this book with me. The values are good guides as to what to expect a piece to cost, but it is the pictures that are invaluable in identifying individual items. The pictures and the text are all very clear and sharp.
A very useful book for identification of Depression Era glassware. Good pictures and a variety of different pieces of each pattern are shown. I use it all the time and it is small enough to fit in your bag and carry with you when you are shopping or at an auction!
This book has enough pictures that you would easily be able to locate pattern , although there is no full history as in the bigger book vs. the pocket guide , this is an excellent reference for starters, the back of the book has 12 pages of reproductions and how to tell them apart , the new photo legends helps as in you no longer have to guess is that the waste bowl or the cereal bowl , i would highly recommend this book small enough for travel and to kep near the computer so you can make an informed decision on what piece to buy
Great book for easily finding a pattern of depression glass. Shows photo and very basic info about the piece. Very easy to use.Great guide to get you on the right track for further research.
MY SISTER AND i HAVE FOUND THE PRICING CORRECT AND THE BOOK HAS A GOOD VARIETY FOR A COLLECTOR, THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE LEGIBLE AND CAN BE EASILY IDENTIFIED WITH OUR COLLECTIONS.
