From the cover: “The range of collectable items in glass and metal is truly phenomenal. Both materials were originally used in purely functional forms; and both developed into media with which skilled craftsmen could create works of exquisite beauty.

Collectors are almost spoiled for choice. It is possible to specialize in a particular period, or on a particular maker; or to concentrate on one type of object. Expenditure need not be great; half the fun is in hunting out bargains or unexpected finds.

In this very popular series, Collecting for Pleasure GLASS AND METALWARE covers a particularly attractive range of 24 collectable categories, from essentials such as tableware and cutlery to highly covetable dressing table silver, art metalware, cut glass and art glass. In the process, it affords insights into many lifestyles, from the Georgian period through to the Art Nouveau movement.

Invaluable buying advice is also given — what to look for and what to avoid, how to check quality and makers’ marks, how to distinguish between originals and reproductions; and there are indispensable price guides for each category to aid the would-be purchaser.

This beautifully illustrated and informative book will be a delight to established collectors and to those new to the field of glass and metal collecting.”
