Description

Spanning the period 1800 up to the present, Miller's Glass A-Z Fact File has almost 6,000 entries, identifying more than 2,000 glassworks and 1,000 designers plus explanations of specialist terms and techniques. Glass producers around the world, from Europe and the USA to India, Japan and Australia have been included and the fields of bottle collecting, studio glass, flamework and paperweights are covered as well as more traditional areas of glass collecting. Where applicable, marks and labels are also included to help identification and an overview of glass-making centres and the development of styles and shapes puts pieces in their context. A comprehensive directory puts collectors in touch with the people they want to be talking to - whether auction houses, collectors' clubs and societies, internet resources or museums, thereby opening up a world of information on prices, historical manufacture, patterns and designs. Miller's Glass A-Z Fact File is a truly international work that no collector can afford to be without.
