BIG BOOK OF VASELINE GLASS (Schiffer Book for Collectors) (Hardcover) by Skelcher Barrie
Barrie Skelcher explains the nature of uranium-colored glass or Vaseline glass and attributes makers to many of the examples he presents. Over 400 items shown in the color photographs are from British American and European glasshouses of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries. The manufacturers are identified along with their uranium bearing products and a section on special interest pieces is a bonus. What strikes the observer right away are the intense colors of the glass in predominantly green yellow and pink hues. They comprise all sorts of useful and collectible tablewares from condiment containers and candlesticks to bowls and flower vases. This fascinating study illuminates the subject and will be cherished by all future investigators and collectors of vaseline glass. Value ranges are included in the captions.
