From Library Journal
Produced as a reference for members of the Antique Collector's Club of Great Britain, this veritable encyclopedia of the 19th-century British glass industry far surpasses previous works dealing with this period. The 19th century saw the production of cameo, rock crystal, cut, and pressed glass, all of great interest to the collectors and historians of today. The wealth of detail about production processes, exhibitions, excise taxes, and other aspects of the glass industry is of particular interest. Hadjamach presents good biographical information on the glassmakers and a section on fakes, forgeries, and reproductions. The illustrations are numerous and excellent. Highly recommended for all decorative arts collections.
