Overview

Fostoria is one of the best known and admired names in American glassware. Probably more brides and homemakers in America have received gifts of and purchased glassware made at the Fostoria factory, in Moundsville, West Virginia, than any other glass company. During its century of operation, the range of style, form, decoration, color, and manufacturing technique was tremendous; only the fine quality remained constant. From 1915 until the factory closed in 1986, one pattern—American No. 2056—has remained a favorite, if not the most popular pattern sought after by glass collectors. This book presents the hundreds of individual glass items in this amazing line, in more than 400 color photographs, patent illustrations, and original promotional advertisements, plus detailed captions, a value guide, quick reference section, and index. It will fascinate and inform both the advanced and beginning collector, and no dealer should be without it.

    GREAT RESOURCE

    THIS WILL BE A GREAT BOOK TO HAVE WHEN I AM LOOKING AT FOSTORIA AMERICAN ON SITES LIKE E-BAY. IT WILL MAKE IT SO MUCH EASIER TO KNOW IF I HAVE A AUTHENTIC PIECE OF CRYSTAL. IT IS ALSO A GREAT BOOK TO GET LOST IN, TO SEE ALL THE POSSIBILITIES OF THIS GREAT CRYSTAL. THIS BOOK ALSO HAS EXAMPLES OF LOOK ALIKE CRYSTAL, INDIANA GLASS AND OTHER LOOK ALIKES.
