Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book when it first appeared on the market, then lost it, so now I bought it in the original and the revised editions. That's how highly I think of it. It could use a revision, but I still find it indispensable, a real eye-opener insofar as it trains your eye to distinguish old glass from new glass, particularly in this day and age of reproductions and fakes.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By heretic666 on November 5, 2013
Format: Hardcover
An interesting little book that was serving as a warning at the time but now serves as a sour reminder of the inability of people to bother to learn about their hobby or interest or just want to earn a quick buck. Most of the items illustrated in this slim volume would now be sold to the unwary as original or antique items. There are a few that are not reproductions but outright fakes intended to deceive.
I always thought a book like this would be a useful addition to the library of reference works for all antique dealers and collectors to the point where it warrants a new edition every year.
A large proportion of the contents would be only applicable to the US market, but some of the coloured and overlaid glass items were, and are just as popular here. The pottery should fool nobody when it comes to england and its products, but the term collictible (correctly collectAble) has blurred so many lines in the criteria of authenticity as a secondary consideration over appearance.
Enough to arouse the suspicions of an experienced dealer or collector, but the novices should equip themselves with this book and all their ilk as an aid to preventing costly errors.
