Product description

From the Publisher

Softback: 210mm x 297mm (full A4 size) - surprisingly, Amazon cannot include a simple feature like the size of the book - it is 210mm x 297mm (full A4 size) and has over 700 full-colour photos. The cover is also not "Paperback" and should be referred to as a "Softback" to make that important distinction.

The book has already gained much acclaim amongst glass collecting circles and finally, a book that answers all the definitive questions about Chance glass. The author also demystifies this subject making it easy to identify the more important items produced by Chance Brothers.

Excerpt from Chapter 2: Pressed Glass

Before the Second World War, domestic glassware was generally available as either high-quality cut-glass crystal or cheaper pressed glass – the latter not necessarily being of great quality and, with a few exceptions, often limited to heavy, chunky clear glassware with uninspiring shapes and simulated cut-glass decoration. Chance made a deliberate attempt to bridge these two extremes and make high-quality pressed-glass tableware with fresh, modern designs that would appeal to a much broader market and, in turn, give this type of glass a higher profile.
