Synopsis: Prized for their elegance, beauty, and artistry, glass bells are found all over the world and are among those most favored by bell collectors. With over 480 color photos, this stunning book showcases more than 850 glass bells produced primarily during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in America, England, France, Italy, and Bohemia, among others. Included are cut glass bells, engraved bells, blown and pressed glass bells, and a special chapter on the highly desirable wedding bells. Each bell is identified by its type, date made, country of origin, and producer if known, along with a general description of size, color, decoration or pattern, and current value. Background information on the manufacturers is provided as well, including helpful hints on attributing bells to different companies by studying features such as handle design and clapper attachment. Based on more than thirty years experience by the author in collecting and researching glass bells, this book will be thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who appreciates bells, glass, and the decorative arts.

A past president of the American Bell Association (ABA), he has contributed many articles about bells to ABA's publication as well as other collector publications. Al is a retired civil engineer and lives in New York state.
