Overview

One of our more popular titles, this tenth edition introduces almost 100 new patterns and almost 200 new photographs, bringing this edition's total to over 2,000 color patterns. Aside from the revamped in-depth sections on carnival glass patterns, this comprehensive reference once again includes a section on an emerging interest of collectors, hatpins. Grading information and salesmen's samples are also included in this edition. All pieces and patterns are described in detail with important facts, colors, histories, and sizes. The bound-in price guide also includes virtually every piece of carnival glass ever made with prices given for various colors in each pattern. A multitude of both American and foreign companies are represented, and brief biographies on companies such as Dugan, Fenton, Imperial, Northwood, Cambridge, Westmoreland, Fostoria, Heisey, McKee, Jeannette, and the U.S. Glass Company are included. There is also a new illustrated section on Millersburg Peacock patterns, as well as old and new company trademarks. Collectors will be thrilled with this new edition.
