About this title

Synopsis:

Glass is to be found everywhere, from delicate wineglasses to ornamental lamps that illuminate and decorate. This book is a valuable starting point for enthusiasts. It tells you where to hunt for bargains and how to add rarities to a growing collection. An important section offers tips on what is available within any price range. It is filled with invaluable advice. How do you spot repairs or re-polishing? How can you avoid the proliferation of fakes while you learn to distinguish fine glass from ordinary? John Sandon's sensible guidance will prevent many costly mistakes. This book tells the whole story of glass, from its discovery in ancient Egypt right through to the fascinating world of the twentieth century and post-war design. The carefully chosen illustrations, all in colour, provide stunning contrasts between fine old Venetian and Art Nouveau masterpieces and quite ordinary decanters and Victorian moulded bottles. Alongside costly rarities is the inexpensive novelty glass anyone can find eas

About the Author:

John Sandon discovered the wonderful world of glass on leaving school, when he joined the combined porcelain and glass department of Phillips in London's New Bond Street, one of the world's leading auction houses, where he has been able to handle many magnificent glass collections. The continuing popularity of Antiques Roadshow enables John to share his enthusiasm with a wide audience.
