The Lechners have studied and specialized in obtaining detailed information relative to the antique art and patterned glass salt shakers primarily manufactured by American glass houses during the 19th and early 20th centuries. In the six years since their last release, they have photographed and documented hundreds of additional shakers not yet featured, leading them to the release of this new volume. It features over 850 gorgeous examples from 68 glass factories. Every shaker is described in great detail, with size, markings, special characteristics, patterns, variations, as well as current collector values. In addition to the enormous gallery of vivid shakers, the Lechners provide essential information on pricing, physical characteristics and measurements, understanding of glass types, and related terminology. A special comprehensive 'Imitation, Reproduction, Look-Alike, and Fake Glass' section exposes antique imitation glass and fakes involving not only salt shakers but cruets, sugar shakers, toothpick holders, and tumblers, and enhances this vast text. 1998 values. AUTHORBIO: The late Ralph Lechner, along with his wife, Mildred, extensively researched colored glass salt shakers and produced a three-volume series that has become a standard reference in the field. His hours of dedication and communication with collectors and members of the Antique and Art Glass Salt Shaker Collectors' Society is reflected in their work. REVIEW: This is the third volume in the authors' series of books on antique art and pattern glass salt and pepper shakers that continues to document the many additional patterns and forms that this type of ware was produced in during the Victorian era, circa 1870-1915. It concentrates on the colored glassware shakers. A must-have for any shaker collector.
