Table of Contents

Milk glass is a favorite of many glass collectors and fanciers, and this detailed, well-researched book is a welcome addition to the field.

Using 225 color photographs and almost 500 black and white catalog illustrations, the authors provide a comprehensive look at milk glass produced from the 1930s through 1984 by the Imperial Glass Corporation of Bellaire, Ohio.

Following a brief historical perspective, collectors are treated to an illustrated look at the wide variety of decorations and treatments used for milk glass, including hand decorated, gold flecked, the interesting "Vigna Vetro," milk glass combined with metal, private mold work, and much more. Popular opaque and slag glass production is covered here as well.

The patterns and categories Imperial used for their milk glass production are stressed. Mold numbers, descriptions, values, and production dates are provided for all pieces to indicate how scarce or abundant an object might be. And as you become familiar with Imperial's milk glass, you will have increased your knowledge of other Imperial production as well, since the same molds were used to produce glass of many different colors and treatments.

This is an invaluable and enjoyable resource for all glass enthusiasts!
