I am extremely disappointed. Following my mother's recent death, I came across her old collection of over 80 sets - at least 90% of which are over 50 years old. I thought this book would be of help in learning about them. NOT EVEN CLOSE!While it says it lists "More than 1,000 salt & pepper shakers...." there is no index & no table of contents. Only 1 set that I have was in this book. While there are great color pictures, and similar types are together (sort of), you have to thumb through the entire book to try to find a particular item. Then do it again... and again.This is a total waste of money and a poor attempt to "Get the Shakedown on Your Collection"! I am the one who got Shook Down.I recommend trying to find a copy to look through before buying this. I wish I had.
I borrowed this book yesterday from the Kindle lending library.I enjoyed the information and plan to add it eventually to my research library.However I was sad they left out some major players in the salt and pepper game, such as Fitz and Floyd.I inherited my mothers collection and they were all F&F from the 50's (Mostly obtained as premiums from Kool cigarettes).This book would be good in addition to another one but will not give close to a complete picture of the S&P collecting hobby.
I waited over 6 months for this lazy excuse for a guide, listing only 1000 shakers. I have about 70 from the 1940's-70's in my collection, and only found 4 in this book. By the authors own admission, he owns over 3000. Why aren't they listed? The pics are nice but the book is very poorly done. Save your money.
I bought one of these for my Mother who has collected for years. My recommendation is to save your money, as this is one of the worst. Very poorly done, appears to have been tossed together in a hurry to beat a deadline or something.
I found that this guide book was very useful.It has several sets of Salt and Pepper shakers that I was looking for a price for
I was very happy to find a number of salt and pepper shakers I have in this book. It also helped me find some sets at great bargains as I knew what price range to look at.
Lots of variety with many shakers I see offered at shops, I think the estimated values are too high. I use this one more often than the other books I have on shakers.
This is a cute book about the antique salt and pepper shakers of the world. The photos are excellent and there is a wide variety of shakers.
