About this title

Synopsis:

-- Completely Revised and Updated. This priceless sourcebook contains new bottle categories, with a special emphasis on reproductions, distinguishing between the old and the new, dating, attribution, and discerning fakes -- plus brief, invaluable discussions of pressed/Sandwich glass and blown glass: pitchers, bowls, and more!
-- A Market Review that spots trends and places them in perspective, gives prices paid at auction, and looks at the future of bottle collecting.
-- Expert Guidance on starting and maintaining your own collection, including advice on how to choose a bottle specialty and what kind of investment will be required.
-- Handy Tips on buying, selling, and trading show you how to make the most of antique shops, flea markets, pawn shops, and tag sales.
-- Vital Information includes listings of dealers across the country and helpful reference books -- plus a glossary of key terms from "applied lip" to "whittle marks."
-- Fully Illustrated with a lavish eight-page color insert.

From the Publisher:

As soon as Jim Megura did his update on BOTTLES I had to turn immediately to the Avon Bottles section. It took me right back to sitting in my grandmother's kitchen, looking through the catalog the Avon lady left, and admiring all the goodies, particularly the fancy bottles filled with scent. Sometimes I got to pick out a bottle of cologne for myself, too. All those bottles are long gone now, but I had to take a look to see if I recognized any on the list.

Jim has done a wonderful job of providing up-to-date prices and new information, and the 8-page color insert is particularly lush. The book is a real treat for bottle collectors.

--Randy Ladenheim-Gil, Editor, House of Collectibles
