During the Great Depression, glass companies turned to machine made methods to produce inexpensive, colorful glass. Pink was the most popular color of glassware then and has retained its popularity in the present day. Pocket Guide to Pink Depression Era Glass, with Price Guide, the first book of its kind to extensively cover only Depression Era pink glass, contains over 200 color photographs. Examples of forty-five patterns and brief histories of glass companies are included along with a chapter of incidental pieces from such firms as Bartlett-Collins, Cambridge, Federal, Fostoria, Hazel-Atlas, Imperial, Westmoreland, and others. Authors Monica Lynn Clements and Patricia Rosser Clements have created an indispensable guide for anyone who collects Depression Era glass or enjoys the beauty of pink glassware.
