Here, over 300 color photos and text document hundreds of Anchor Hocking's very collectible red glassware known as Royal Ruby. Many pieces in this book have never been included in a reference volume before. Here are uncommon patterns, such as Chateau, Newport, Inspiration, and Avon, more common forms, and some experimental test pieces that were never mass-produced. This book is a necessary reference for glass collectors and dealers; a detailed price guide is included.
Philip Hopper is a Lieutenant Colonel who has been collecting Royal Ruby glass for over 25 years. Hopper also collects railroad tie date nails, bank notes, lithographs, handmade bottles, and antique Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He also authored Royal Ruby with Schiffer Publishing.
