MILK GLASS by E.M. Belknap


Email this review


This is to the subject of Milk glass what the McKearin book is to American glass at its best -- a book for collectors based on one of the best and largest collections. For would-be collectors, it gives basic points on how to tell originals from reproductions, and there's a comprehensive list of patterns now being reproduced. Identification- pattern-design-color, all are discussed. The text then goes on to the specific forms in which milk glass has been used:- plates, candlesticks, lamps, platters, trays, pitchers, jugs, compotes, animal forms, bottles, vases -- and the variants in the glass itself.
