Collecting Head Vases

Experienced collector and author David Barron has produced this much-needed book on head vases. Featuring several thousand head vases in more than 1,500 color photographs, many never before seen in any publication, the book contains primarily lady heads but also features other types of miscellaneous head vases - clowns, animals, children, Madonna figures, and others. Tips and hints for collectors, information on how to make repairs and remove crazing, and how to spot reproductions and fakes are among the special sections in the book. A chapter on the annual head vase convention with information and photographs is included, as well as a quick reference guide to the numbers on the bottoms of the vases. 2006 values.

I'm a new head vase collector, but this is by far the best and most comprehensive book around! I have found it easy to use and the pictures and info are great. I also bought the Kathleen Cole book and this one is much better! I'd give it 6 stars if I could!

This book is the most comprehensive head vase book that has ever been written and I have them all. Beautiful color pictures and realistic up to date values. Loaded with useful information not available in other head vase books. A must have for the head vase collector.

Excellent book well done. Wonderful display of head vases. He has divided his ladies into catagories. He includes cleaning tips, repair tips, head vase websites and best of all and added plus he has a numerical index in the back of his book very very helpfull to finding that special lady fast when you are checking out prices on Ebay. If I could only purchase one collection book I would purchase Dave Barrons book.

For the amateur to the experienced, this is a fabulous reference guide for all headvase collectors! Definite must-have !

The book is in great condition and exactly what I exected and useful to me. However the process after the purchase from takes far to long. A month for a book is rediculous.

Fast shipping and a nice book, but just like the Encyclopedia of Head Vases by Kathleen Cole, none of my head vases were listed in the book. So again, I don't fault the book, but it was a little disappointing.

While writing my column for the Courier Life papers, "How Much Is It Worth?" I received a request from a reader for an appraisal of her head vase collection. Head vases are truly a unique, charming, fun, and quirky collectible. While I had some familiarity with the head vases, their origins, styles, rarity and values, I turned to Barron personally for current market value estimates and advice on the reader's request. Barron was very helpful and I simply adore this book. It is a wonderful guide to a lovely collectible. In a manner similar to some iconic head vases, this book is a classic!

Since it is out of print now, it is so much harder to find. Arrived a little shop-worn, but I was pleasantly surprised that they included loose snapshots of headvases, too. Do wish there was an updated book, but this is the best available at this time.
