4to. 288pp. Black cloth in an illustrated jacket. This authoritative volume takes as its subject thousands of beautiful hand-formed decorative glassware designs from British manufacturers in the years 1850 to 1914. It considers both those intended for export and those for domestic use. Each is given a detailed analysis and more than 850 color photographs and hundreds of carefully hand-drawn illustrations provide a visual feast to study and enjoy. The jacket has some light shelf-wear at its edges, and there is a 1cm closed tear at the top of the spine. Otherwise the book is in exceptional condition. Surely Gulliver has given us the authoritative text on Victorian Decorative Glass design.
