Love this reference book...I find myself going back to it again and again, not just for the research but for the outstanding photos as well. Great background information on the company itself and easy to understand! LOVE IT!
I purchased this book in hopes of helping me learn about my new obsession.....orange & green viking glass vases!! This book has fantastic pictures and descriptions of the many different vases, fakes and closely related brand vases. It is even much better than a website found on the internet and I can drool oven the gorgeous vases whenever I want to! It's been a huge help! And it was swiftly delivered!! :)
I've had mixed results with Schiffer Books, content-wise this was one of the better efforts. Unfortunately my original order and the replacement copy both have damage to the covers.
