Overview

Combining beauty, delicacy, and exquisite design, glass is one of the most exciting media of the last century and is now a highly popular collectible. Written by world-renowned expert Judith Miller and specialist consultants, DK Collector's Guides: 20th-Century Glass explores this fascinating field, from Art Nouveau in the 1900s through to the modern Scandinavian designs of the 1950s, the Studio glass of the 1970s, and contemporary design. Divided into chapters covering the different collecting areas, including blown, cased, pressed, iridescent, and cut glass, and enameled, painted, and stained glass, over 1,000 beautiful pieces are presented in specially commissioned full-color photographs with size and up-to-date price displayed below each piece. Detailed information on individual designers and factories, such as Tiffany, Lalique, Steuben, and Blenko, make this an essential guide for both the glass enthusiast and novice collector. Additional features include popular Collecting Fields, such as paperweights, perfume bottles, and glass jewelry, and "Good, Better, Best" price comparison features to indicate why similar pieces can vary greatly in value. Combining historical information, a price guide, and useful collecting tips, this is the must-have for anyone with an interest in 20th-century glass.
