Gene Florence, the foremost authority on Depression era glassware, has compiled another edition in his Very Rare series. This book features over 200 pieces of very rare Depression glass, including kitchen and elegant glass. Many of the pieces are one of a kind and others can be found in only limited quantities. Rarity can be determined by an unusual color or pattern. This beautiful, hard-cover book presents the 'rarest of the rare' in large photos showing every detail along with values. These rarities can still surface in unexpected places. A fairly common-looking pitcher found for 50 cents at a garage sale could turn out to be one of its kind, worth hundreds of dollars. Many of these pieces will never be seen by the average collector. The exposure of these items in this book along with the other four in the series may help you discover a rarity. These essential and informative books help you know what to look for in your glassware searches. 1997 values. 8.5 X 11.
This book highlights those infrequently seen, hard-to-find items from the Depression era and the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. It is the 5th in a 6-book series.
