this book is the first book on Heisey glassware to completely cover the early period from 1896-1924. It offers a complete history of the company and includes original color photographs of over 50 patterns along with explanations and dates of origin. It is NOT copies of sales catalogues, but rather an encylcopedia of photos of actual glass pieces. It is highly recommended for collectors of pattern glass, elegant glassware and fine glassware of this time period.
I inherited a Heisey punchbowl - the one on the cover but, sadly, not green - from my great-grandmother, and this book gave me its history and led to my completing it with the matching stand and cups.

great book on Heisey glass, great photos and description of the patterns and the history of when they were made. The only thing i wish this had was a full collection of all the patterns including the colonial patterns. The author also mentions on her detest of the gold and ruby staining and how she prefers the clear better, honestly thats her opinion and it shouldnt have been in the book.
