This book is unparalleled in its findings the author has had access to factory records previously undocumented in other publications. Black glass, cobalt glass from the 1920s and 1930s, milk glass from the 1950s, and over 20 patterns from the early years are featured. Mount Pleasant and Moon & Star are also given full coverage using a combination of original photos, vintage photos from company files, and catalog reprints. But besides the well-known items produced by the company, some collectible areas where Smith s contribution has remained virtually unknown are also highlighted: ruby-stained souvenir ware, rare candy containers made during the teens and twenties, Art Deco figural powder jars, and figural boudoir lamps. Fully illustrated are Smith s popular animal figurines, covered animal dishes, and many other specialized products. Over 1,000 photographs and catalog reprints make this volume the ideal introduction to one of the only American handmade glass companies that is still in operation after 100 years. 2007 values.
