Description

Written records show that Phoenix Glass Company was the major domestic manufacturer of colored and specialty glass between 1880 and the turn of the century and within this relatively short period of time, the firm made a wide variety of art glass products in a large number of colors and effects. Since it was not signed, nearly all the art glass made by Phoenix has now lost its identity. This beautifully photographed and extensively researched book identifies hundreds of Phoenix Art Glass tableware, lighting products, and novelties by matching objects to descriptions and illustrations in the trade literature. Organized by mold and optic patterns, the objects are presented in an easy-to-follow format. With values in the captions, this beautiful book will become an indispensable reference.
