Leslie Piña

Available Now


Neither a particular style nor the product of one company, crackle glass has become one of the popular fields of twentieth century glass collecting. Crackling, a finish caused by dipping the hot piece of glass into cooling water, is the common feature that gives this type of glass its name. The majority of this glass was handblown by West Virginia glass companies such as Blenko, Pilgrim, Rainbow, Kanawha, and Bischoff.This volume shows thousands of crackle glass vases, pitchers, bowls, tumblers, and dishes grouped in more than 300 full color photos, with company histories, detailed captions, a current price guide, bibliography, and index. It will serve as a necessary reference for students, collectors, and dealers of this colorful glassware.
