Our Very Rare Glassware of the Depression Years books have been bestsellers for many years, helping collectors spot those rare and valuable pieces of Depression glass that may come around once in a lifetime. Rarity can be determined by an unusual color or pattern; many pieces here are one of a kind or can be found only in limited quantities. Gene Florence is America's leading glassware authority, and his books are considered required reading. Now he has selected examples that really shine to produce a fresh look at these pieces. This new book, Treasures of Very Rare Depression Glass features over 1000 rare examples of Depression items, as well as elegant and kitchen items. It features many famous glass companies, including Duncan & Miller, Federal, Fostoria, Fenton, A.H. Heisey, Hocking, Imperial, Jeannette, Paden City, Tiffin, and more. Values are given for these rare items, as well as colors, shapes, sizes, and comments from the author. Brief histories on the companies are often provided. These rarities can still surface in unexpected places. A fairly common-looking pitcher found for 50 cents at a garage sale could turn out to be one of its kind, worth hundreds of dollars. Many of these pieces will never be seen by the average collector -- unless you know what to watch for. This book can help you discover a rarity! 2003 values.
