Description Shipping Notes

Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry.


As collectors may know, in perfumes, colognes and stoppers, the stopper is 1/2 of the value of the set. It is therefore of particular importance that it be the CORRECT stopper. The book spends much time on this topic, so you too can become an expert on the matter.

Showcased within the book are many close-ups of vases, colognes and stoppers. My attention was particularly drawn to the colognes. The book details the difference between Overlay (cased) colored glass and staining (flashing) on glass. There is a substantial difference both in the quality of the two, as well as the value. If you are yet to be educated on the matter, I won't give the secret away here, but the book does detail this for you. This is particularly important if you want to buy/ own/ or sell the genuine Sandwich Glass article, as many amatuers confuse the two terms and pass off the flashed colored glass, which is an imitation of Sandwich, as the genuine article.

Readers whose interest is quality vintage glass will find the book fascinating. ---- Collector Bookstore Staff, John K.

A book that will guide you when you are in the process of buying or appraising Sandwich glass is the most important tool you can own. This book is one of a series of guide books that describes every type of glass that was produced in Sandwich, Massachusetts. It uses the original plates of glass photos and the identification numbers form Volume 3 of The Glass Industry in Sandwich, a larger book by the same authors. (Volumes 3 and 4 are available, and Volumes 1 and 2 are in preparation.) This makes cross reference much easier.

In order to make this series of guides compact and light in weight, the photos from Volume 3 have been divided into two smaller guides. This one contains the complete chapters on vases, colognes and stoppers. Another guide, availabe now, contains witch balls, covered containers, toys (miniatures) and the creations of Nicholas Lutz.

The extensive categorization and illustration of Sandwich glass should make this guide valuable for field use. The prices in this guide reflect the market at the time of publication. They will be periodically updated in a separate price guide available from the publishers.
