From the Publisher:

Imagine two friends antiquing at a local glass show, stopping at every table in their quest for rare 1920s and Depression era memorabilia. At the days end, they come together to tally their finds. One friend has a milk glass covered candy jardecorated and resting on a square basebut laments that it isnt mentioned in any reference guides to Depression glass. The other friend reveals an inscrutably plain sandwich traywith a center handle and a footbut remarks that this piece, also, has eluded the Depression glass authors. Disappointed, the two friends leave the show with their mysterious new finds safely tucked away. How could they know the makers of this rare glass before the dawning of a new book entitled Great American Glass? Adding to the historic work of Florence and Weatherman, this book will expand anyones knowledge of U.S. made glassware from the 1920s and 30s. Arranged alphabetically by company name, not only does the book feature the products of over 30 different glassmaking firms, each section discusses patterns, colors and decorations that were prevalent in glassware from this exciting and vivid time. Imagine that! Complete with 1998 price guide.
