Fans of authors Bill Edward's and Mike Carwile's Standard Encyclopedia of Carnival Glass series will be delighted with this easy-to-use, small format book which highlights the more than 1,500 carnival glass patterns available, those that collectors will find most often during their early quests for these cherished treasures. Keeping the beginning collector in mind, the book is arranged alphabetically by pattern name for easy reference. Each pattern shines on its own page, with all necessary facts and a detailed photograph to illustrate the pattern. Data about each piece includes name of pattern, manufacturer, year of production, colors and shapes available, and any information on reproductions that is known. The approximately 200 patterns presented reflect just those American patterns (no foreign pieces or manufacturers areincluded) the collector or buyer might encounter in the malls or at any auction. A brief section on marks appears in the front of the book, and of course the pocket guide is filled with current values -- prices are given for every color of every pattern.
