Depression-era glassware has never been more popular. Now, in this fifth edition of the acclaimed reference, Gene Florence presents more than 4,900 pieces of glassware in full color. Each item is shown by color, then by shape or pattern. Descriptions include dimensions and current values for each pictured item.

A collector since childhood, Gene Florence's hobby of buying and selling glassware turned into a full-time career. First writing a book on Depression Glass, Florence has gone on to author many popular glassware titles including books on Depression Glass; Occupied Japan Collectibles; Kitchen Glassware; Very Rare Glassware; 40s, 50s, & 60s Glassware;Elegant Glassware; Stemware; Glassware Pattern Identification; Anchor Hocking's Fire-King; Glass Candlesticks; and Salt & Pepper Shakers.
Cathy Florence, graduated with honors and a coveted voice award from high school, attended Georgetown College where she obtained a French major and an English minor, then married her middle-school sweetheart Gene Florence. In the mid-80s she authored a book on collecting quilts, harking back to skills taught her by her grandmothers; and she has since co-authored many books on glass with husband Gene.
It has been 8 years since the previous, 6th edition, was released and this latest book is a compilation of over 5,000 items from earlier editions. The price ranges given allow for some wear and tear that is commonly found on kitchen items, since almost all of these items were in household use for many years. (This doesn't mean, however, that cracks or chips are acceptable.) The first section of the book is a listing of items by company name, followed by design.
