Here is the first book to highlight the gorgeous decorated satin glassware produced by Factories D, G, and K of the United States Glass Company during the 1920s. Bowls, candlesticks, candy boxes, dresser sets, vases, and table and novelty lamps are among the items shown for the first time here.Over 230 beautifully detailed color photos plus 110 original hand-colored catalog pages illustrate numerous shapes and patterns. They highlight the various techniques used to decorate the satin ware (painted and gold decorations, bright with satin finish, etched and cut decorations, lines, patterns, and other treatments) as well as their classic embossed designs.The text contains a short history of the United States Glass Company, a guide to the colors produced during the 1920s and 1930s, and a listing of the factories, their locations, the items they produced, detailed descriptions of the glassware, and current market values. This book will be an invaluable reference for all who wish to identify previously unknown patterns and decorations made by these U.S. Glass factories.
