Review

Gene Florence's Very Rare Glassware of the Depression Years books have been bestsellers for many years, helping collectors spot those rare and valuable pieces that may come around only once in a lifetime. This book highlights all those treasures and more, with the "best of the best" of Florence's books all in one volume.

About the Author

A collector since childhood, Gene Florence's hobby of buying and selling glassware turned into a full-time career. First writing a book on Depression Glass, Florence has gone on to author many popular glassware titles including books on Depression Glass; Occupied Japan Collectibles; Kitchen Glassware; Very Rare Glassware; 40s, 50s, & 60s Glassware;Elegant Glassware; Stemware; Glassware Pattern Identification; Anchor Hocking's Fire-King; Glass Candlesticks; and Salt & Pepper Shakers.

Cathy Florence, graduated with honors and a coveted voice award from high school, attended Georgetown College where she obtained a French major and an English minor, then married her middle-school sweetheart Gene Florence. In the mid-80s she authored a book on collecting quilts, harking back to skills taught her by her grandmothers; and she has since co-authored many books on glass with husband Gene.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Florences' depression glass books are legendary, and for good reason; they're well-written, comprehensive, and authoritative. This one, about very rare patterns, is worth studying just in case you come across that once-in-a-lifetime find at a garage sale or auction.

This was a used book, but it's worthwhile having different editions on the same subject - some of the older books have different write-ups than the newer ones.

Other volumes from their catalog that I've read include Collector s Encyclopedia of Depression Glass,19th Edition (Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass), Elegant Glassware of the Depression Era Thirteenth Edition, and Kitchen Glassware of the Depression Years Seventh Edition.

All highly recommended.
