About this title:


A fascinating and insightful look into the art glass of the 1950s, this revised second edition spans the range of 1950s art glass from common collectibles to those of museum quality, displaying the diversity and creativity of style, color, and shape. This book has served as an inspiration and valuable resource for collectors, dealers, and all struck by the exceptional quality of art glass. Special emphasis is given to Italian (Murano) glass and Scandinavian glass, with an expanded section on American 50s glass. Included in this edition are new and outstanding photographs of art glass, detailed captions, updated information on artists and company histories, an illustrated glossary with section on signatures and labels, an expanded annotated bibliography, and up-to-date price guide.

Product Description: Special emphasis is given to Italian (Murano) and Scandinavian glass, with artist and designer biographies, company histories, an illustrated glossary, an illustrated section on signatures and labels, index, and a price guide. Ranging from common collectibles to museum quality art, these glass objects from the 1950s are all within that range of style, color, quality, and fun that we now identify as "fifties glass."
