    Well done but not comprehensive

    This book is well written and has excellent photography, but is not a comprehensive list of the patterns and types of Fire-King. It's size is handy if you want to take it along to flea markets or garage sales. However there is much more to the Fire-King line and if you want to be a serious collector, a more comprehensive book would probably be necessary.

    Anchor Hocking sets the table with Fire King

    Simple yet beautifully designed, Fire King, glassware adorned with country or geometrical motifs....is durable, and useful as a kitchenware item, and also highly collectible (ie, Jadeite). It abounds in thrift as well as antique/collectible stores, and is found in abundance on internet auction sites. The book is a simple yet practical introduction to a variety of Fire-King designs and incarnations, from the omnipresent mug to the clear glass-topped casserole dish. Fire King was often the choice for advertising premiums, as evidenced in the famous 'Esso Tiger' mug from the early 1960's. The book is a more than sufficient primer for a beginning collector, but not for the collector looking for that one special piece. The guide is easy to follow, read, and its 4-color illustrations are brilliantly crisp. For the savvy dealer who wants more detail, it doesn't quite do the trick.
