Fenton Glass, bottles identification guides available on DVD

IOLA, Wis. (Sept. 25, 2008) — The antiques group of F+W Media has made two new antiques identification and price guides available on DVD: Warman’s Fenton Glass Identification and Price Guide, Second Edition, and the Antique Trader Bottles Identification and Price Guide, Fifth Edition.

“At Antique Trader, we try to bring antiques enthusiasts information that will help enrich their enjoyment of the hobby,” says Antique Trader associate publisher Scott Tappa. “For so long that information has been delivered in print, and more recently via the Internet. Now we are offering digital products, and we think collectors of bottles and Fenton Glass will enjoy the searchability, image-enlarging capabilities, and tutorials offered on DVD.”

New DVDs.jpgWith incorrectly-dated pieces presenting a challenge to collectors, the DVDs are a valuable tool to help make sense of the Fenton glass and bottles market. The products allow users to search by era, formal name, color, style, and price, then select a page or category to print out. Plus, users can enlarge the pages on the screen by 400% — useful for close-up inspection of photos and reading descriptions.

The Fenton Glass DVD also includes tips for finding, buying, selling, displaying, and caring for Fenton Glass; 1,100 striking color photos to assist with identification; a valuable tutorial for deciphering Fenton markings; and an in-depth history of the Fenton Art Glass Co.

The Bottles DVD offers 5,000 listings with current prices; in-depth history on bottles and trademark information; contact information for collector clubs, museums, and auction companies; and tips for finding, buying, selling, displaying, and caring for bottles.
