Lifestyle experts Suzanne Slesin, Daniel Rozensztroch, and Stafford Cliff, whose previous books have proclaimed the pleasures of collecting such everyday items as garden tools and kitchen ceramics, now shine their spotlight on glass. Featuring cruets and canisters, inkwells and lanterns, pitchers and paperweights, Glass shows how a discriminating eye can uncover a wide assortment of practical and decorative finds at flea markets and antique shops, and offers creative ways to adapt them to today's interiors. Luminous color photographs capture the ethereal qualities of vintage glass with its transparent hues, jewel-like facets or florid etchings, pressed patterns, and pleasing forms. The range of objects in this book is sure to appeal to casual enthusiasts and dedicated collectors alike.
