New, unread. 100 b&w photos. Index. Dessert was a decorative occasion in Britain, enjoyed by the well-to-do, and the glassware that furnished it had to be the finest and most newly fashioned. The range of designs is immense, but the glass was always of the highest quality: lead crystal cut or uncut and flint glass. The period covered is from the 1700s to the 1930s. The book can also be considered a short treatise on glass manufacturing. The author shows how to recognize the old glass from new, good glass and not so good glass. For its size, the book packs a tremendous amount of information. ; Antique Pocket Guides Ser.; 64 pages
