About this title

Synopsis:

This glass appeals to a broad spectrum of collectors with interests in historic Americana, Victorian collectibles, and the formal American and European art styles. After years of research, a comprehensive and authoritative reference book has been written in a true pictorial style to help the reader understand how to determine the approximate age and origin of, and to provide a relative value for, each piece. With hundreds of photographic illustrations and accompanying text, Pictorial Guide to Silvered Mercury Glass will delight collectors. Each item is individually showcased to provide both visual and factual information appropriate for both the new and advanced collector. The complex production history of silvered mercury glass is explored extensively in the beginning of the book, and includes detailed information about decorating techniques. The chapters are arranged by form and style, and include sections on vases, compotes, goblets, globes, tableware, and specialty items.
