About this title

Synopsis:

This unique collaboration between authors Cindy Chipps and Greg Olson has resulted in the largest, best, and most comprehensive study ever undertaken in the field of collectible Christmas lighting. Collector's Encyclopedia of Electric Christmas Lighting is a double-size volume that showcases the transition of Christmas lighting from the 1890s into the 1960s -- everything from the first hand-blown lights used by an associate of Thomas Edison right up through the heyday of the Christmas lighting industry of the 1950s, when many companies were competing for an ever-growing post-war market. Shown are the unique design graphics used on the lighting set boxes of the 1920s and 1930s. Rare and unique figural lights are displayed. A vast representation of window candelabras and door wreaths is portrayed. The transition of wall hangings from the early plaster Santa heads of the 1920s to the intricate vinylite pieces of the 1950s is shown. Bubble lights and matchless stars are portrayed in their full glory. The wonders of Christmas motion lamps and other odd and unique Christmas lighting pieces are explored. This book makes a great Christmas gift, but is also the ideal present year-round for Christmas lighting lovers everywhere. 2005 values.
