This much-anticipated book covers early crystal lines of glass by Lancaster, such as Colonial and the 411 Crown Line through the more ornately molded colored lines of the mid to late 1930s, such as Garden Trellis and Cable. It also explains the mystery and correlation of the company's three more widely known patterns: Jubilee, Patrick, and Sphinx. In addition, the publication explores the relationship of its sister company, the Standard Glass Manufacturing Company, as well as the purchase of the Monongah Glass Co. Over 325 color photos, some showing the etch in detail for ease of identification, plus 125 catalog reprints and ads, give the collector better clarification and understanding of the company's lines. Values and dimensions are provided for known pieces that exist. A cross-reference section is included with those lines that share molded blanks and a name origin validation is added to assist the collector in understanding who named what line. A full bibliography completes this work to make it a great reference for years to come. 2008 values.

John P. Zastowney was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the last 25 years of his career, he has held many positions as a Production Manager and Operations Director. He became interested in glass collecting in 1995 as a result of a local thrift store auction. Three years later at that same thrift store, he acquired his first piece of Lancaster glass.Review:
The Lancaster Glass company was founded in Lancaster, Ohio in 1903 by Lucien Martin who had worked at Fostoria Glass Co. In 1924 the factory was purchased by the Hocking Glass Company who continued to use the Lancaster name until 1937. The Standard Glass Company was organized in 1924 and was largely controlled by Hocking. Thus blanks and designed from both Standard and Lancaster were used interchangeably.
