If you're looking to identify stemware - this is the book for you! Precise illustrations and photos will help you identify just about any pattern in crystal - etched, cut, etc.. I was able to identify two stems I'd been trying to identify for YEARS as a Glastonbury/Lotus pattern.

Good Source for Identifying Stemware 26 Aug. 2001
By Wayne G. Stelts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for identifying good stemware that you find at garage sales, swap meets, auctions, estate sales or something left to you by a relative. The book has several hundred pictures - either actual photographs or sketches of stemware that are sorted by manufacturer. Just browse the book until you find a match and you know the manufacturer and pattern name of the item. It also has a handly index - if you happen to know the pattern name - so you can find the corresponding picture or sketch and the manufacturer. Once you know the manufacturer it's easy to get more information off the internet. The book also references a place where you may be able to get additional pieces or sell the pieces you have. My only wish is that the book gave some historical information on the various manufactures and their patterns.

the only one you need! 12 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This excellent reference would have saved me 6 months of fruitless searching to find the name of a discontinued pattern, if I had found it sooner. I would give this 6 stars if I could! Its completeness and layout are truly superior to anything else like it.

This book will pay for itself! 24 Mar. 2001
By Phillip Pessar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is the greatest. If you haunt flea markets and garage sales like I do you need this book. It will more than pay for itself the first month you have it by allowing you to identify the mystery stemware you pick up. I take it along with me every time I go to the flea market or a garage sale. Once you know the name of your stemware you can always sell it to Replacements or on eBay and pick up a little extra cash for more junk :)

Crystal Stemware 6 Sept. 2005
By Carlos G. Vieira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although the authors have done a great job, I felt they could make it better by including a little bit more of the antique european crystal (such as Saint-Louis) and by trying to date the patterns by decades at least(1880-1890, 1920-1930, 1950-1960). Anyway, it is an invaluable source for collectors and crystal buyers.
