CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Now that the 20th century is over, new historical perspectives are changing
the value of collectables more quickly than collectors can follow. An author
whose own collections exceed 20,000 glass pieces analyzes and presents over
2,000 pieces of affordable, available 20th-century glass objects in
collector-friendly style, going country by country in alphabetical order. His
unique timeline chart traces the century’s progression of designers such as Per
Lütken, Timo Sarpaneva, Nanny Still, and Alexander Hardie Williamson, along
with mass-produced works from manufacturers like Holmegaard of Denmark and
Littala of Finland; plus, he offers predictions about current designers. Photos
of every object are accompanied by design drawings and close-ups of original
marks, including hard-to-identify and even missing markings. Value codes are
provided for each item.
