As a glass collecting enthusiast I have read my share of collecting books through the years, and I have to say that this is the most visually appealing and informative books I have ever read. Viking made beatiful and colorful pieces of glass, and Dean Six's book captures the beauty of the glass while putting the pieces in a logical and historical context.
I highly recommend this book not only for the serious Viking collector, but for anyone who collect glass, is interested in history or enjoys a beautiful decorative arts book.

Beautifully compiled by Dean Six, the Schiffer edition of Viking Glass 1944-1970 is a superbly organized and presented collector's price guide enhanced with more 520 color photographs of the exceptional, painstakingly handmade glassware produced by the Viking Glass Company of New Martinsville, West Virginia from 1944 to 1970. Glorious color and design mark virtually every page of this beautiful display volume which will prove an invaluable reference for professional dealers and dedicated collectors.

As a person very attracted to the colors & shapes of Viking Glass, I have enjoyed this book immensley! I have been able to identify most all pieces in my collection from this book and learned about new patterns, colors, shapes to look for in the future! I'm also looking forward to seeing a new book that covers 70's & beyond! Hope he's working on one! Thank you Dean Six!

This is a catalog of pieces produced by the Viking Glass Company of West Virginia from 1944-1970. As such, it consists mainly of pictures and listing of item numbers. The pictures consist of photographs that I presume were shot for this book, as well as small reproductions of pages from the company's catalogs and advertisements. The book begins with a brief history, and includes a bibliography, a list of Viking workers, and a somewhat erratic index.

My review is biased by the fact that I was primarily interest in their overlay glass, which this books covers rather poorly. The pictures are not terribly good (you could do better looking online) and there are no entries in the index. The cut, etched and engraved glass is best viewed in the small reproductions of the original catalog. Unfortunately, the photographer did not use their technique of presenting these against a dark background and one can barely see the designs. I am surprised: Schiffer usually does much better than this.

The other glass is fairly well presented, with examples of various colors and styles.

I collect Viking Glass and this book has been used non-stop since I purchased it several years ago. If you collect Viking Art Glass you need this book!
