Antique Collectors' Club is privileged to present a book written for all antique glass bottle collectors and enthusiasts. This major work is the first of its kind. It comprehensively charts the history and evolution of antique glass utility bottles between 1500 and 1850. Written by a leading collector and authority on the subject, who once worked in the bottle-making industry, this unmatched book is destined to become the indispensable reference work on this subject. An incredible visual history of the evolution of the glass bottle over a period of 350 years is presented here. The thorough text is accompanied by 368 remarkable original colour photographs of 773 bottles and seals.
The author's achievement is staggering. He has succeeded in producing an accurate study of each and every main region of Europe that has produced glass utility bottles. The inter-relationships and influences are observed and a comparative guide covering almost all of the bottle-producing world has been created. In addition to this, the book boasts the most comprehensive bibliography on glass bottles ever produced, listing 1,150 titles. Almost all of the bottles illustrated in this volume have been carefully chosen from a variety of private collections. This trulymagnificent book demonstrates that collecting antique glass bottles is one of the most rewarding of all hobbies.
This outstanding work will appeal to archaeologists, researchers, historians, writers, museums, libraries, bottle-makers, dealers and all others who have an interest, whether involved or remote, in collecting antiques.
