Table of Contents

Fifties Glass provides fascinating insights into the striking art glass produced during this exceptionally creative decade. It is not merely another survey or history of glass. Special emphasis is given to Italian (Murano) and Scandinavian glass, because more good fifties glass was made in those regions than anywhere else.

In addition to hundreds of color photographs with detailed captions, the book includes an introductory essay, artist and designer biographies, company histories, an illustrated glossary, an illustrated section on signatures and labels, an annotated bibliography, and a price guide. This promises to be an invaluable aid to the collector.

It is the first volume published in English to extensively catalog and categorize this relatively new area of collecting and study. Ranging from common collectibles to museum quality art, these pieces are all within that range of style, color, quality, and fun that we now identify as fifties glass.
