Now that the 20th century is over, new historical perspectives are changing the value of collectables more quickly than collectors can follow. An author whose own collections exceed 20,000 glass pieces analyzes and presents over 2,000 pieces of affordable, available 20th-century glass objects in collector-friendly style, going country by country in alphabetical order. His unique timeline chart traces the century’s progression of designers such as Per Lütken, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still, and Alexander Hardie Williamson, along with mass-produced works from manufacturers like Holmegaard of Denmark and Littala of Finland; plus, he offers predictions about current designers. Photos of every object are accompanied by design drawings and close-ups of original marks, including hard-to-identify and even missing markings. Value codes are provided for each item.
