IOLA, Wis. – It’s been said, learning about Depression glass is like taking a stroll back in time to the late 1920s and 1930s; and the new edition of Warman’s Depression Glass is the perfect guide for the trip.
The new sixth edition of this top-selling glass book features more than 600 color images, including many pieces from the prized collections of the National Glass Museum. With thousands of listings for pieces from 170 of the most popular patterns of Depression glass, this book offers the most comprehensive review of this historic type of glass.
“These dishes were used everyday, brightening the otherwise drab lives of folks struggling through the Great Depression,” said Pam Meyer, National Depression Glass Association Glass Museum and convention chairperson, in the foreword of Warman’s Depression Glass.
In addition to high-quality photographs, the new edition contains updated values for various colors for pieces of each pattern, a color timeline representing the date each pattern was first issued, the valuable pattern silhouette section, shape library and a glossary of Depression glass terminology. Plus, at the beginning of each new pattern section is information about the manufacturers, colors available in that pattern and any notes about commonly reproduced pieces.
Whether you’re a fan of the elegant and illustrious American Sweetheart, Rock Crystal or Sandwich patterns, or the more simplistic Charm, Forest Green and Moondrops patterns, you’ll find a multitude of information and collecting inspiration in this new edition of Warman’s Depression Glass.
