IOLA, Wis. — Just in time for the spring and summer flea market, rummage sale and outdoor antiques show season, the antiques group of F+W Media and Krause Publications has released the newest edition of one of its most popular pocket-sized antiques guides, “Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide.”
This fifth edition, authored by renowned glass expert Ellen T. Schroy, takes a big subject like Depression glass and makes it easily understandable with readily accessible key information, especially the all-important glass patterns.
“What elevates this dynamite little guide above all others on the market is the pattern silhouette guide,” said Paul Kennedy, editorial director for Krause Publications’ Antiques and Collectibles books. “The illustrated patterns found throughout are critical for identifying the type of depression glass you are looking at.”
The pattern silhouette section alone is more than 20 pages, and includes detailed illustrations of more than 150 different patterns, including American Sweetheart, Cameo, Mayfair and Royal Lace, among others.
While much has changed since the first pieces of Depression Glass found their way into the homes of American families as premiums included in detergent boxes or given out at movie theaters, the glorious colors and intricate design of Depression Glass remains timeless. “Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide, 5th Ed.” brings this stunning and dynamic style of glass to life in nearly 500 superb color images of every shade, while providing thousands of listings, updated valuations, a production company timeline and collector club information.
Built for use at home or quick-and-ready review out on the road during antiquing adventures, the accessibility, flexibility and reliability of “Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide” is unmatched among today’s glass references.
“Warman’s Depression Glass Field Guide, 5th Ed.” ($14.99 U.S.) is available at national booksellers, local antique shops or directly from the publisher: online at KrauseBooks.com, or via telephone at 855-864-2579, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST.
