The sound of tinkling bells, like water in a gentle stream or the first bird song at dawn, is pure pleasure, as is this wonderful new reference that deals with a vast array of collectible glass bells. Generously and beautifully illustrated, the book presents over 500 ex-quisite, America-made glass bells. Each is identified by type, manufacturer, and period.
Organized in chapters and highlighted by manufacturer information, the categories include: American Art Glass Bells, American Cut Glass Bells, American Blown and Pressed Glass Bells, and Lampwork Bells. Detailed captions for all photographs offer descrip-tions, names, dates, sizes, and values. The book also includes information on the American Bell Association and a useful index.
An essential reference for bell and glass collectors, dealers, museum curators, and historians, this book “rings” with the elegance and style of the beautiful objects it presents.
