From the Publisher


This new study of the Central Glass Company, Wheeling, West Virginia, and its beautiful glass is one of the most comprehensive books in the collecting field. Heavily illustrated with color images, historical documents, and catalog pages, it will satisfy both the collector and the glass historian. Each pattern is illustrated, most with beautiful color photos, and all are carefully described. A guide to current values is included. The pattern designs, collected from a variety of incomplete, partially destroyed, and randomly numbered catalogs, are placed in the correct order of the mold number, offering the first chronological overview of the company's growth. An easy identification guide compiles every known pattern made by the Central Glass Company from 1863 to 1893. The reader will discover many formerly unknown patterns with correct attributions to the Central Glass Company.
