Leslie Piña

Revised & Expanded 2nd Edition

Available Now


Here is a fascinating study of commercial glass production along the Ohio River Valley in the 1950s and 1960s. Companies such as Blenko, Pilgrim, Rainbow, Viking, Kanawaha, Bischiff, Morgantown, and others made free- and mold-blown production glass in modern, sometimes bizarre shapes and wildly vibrant colors. Over 100 new images have been added to this revised and expanded second edition, for a total of over 530 color photographs of the beautiful glass, its labels, catalog pages, company histories. An updated price guide provides valuable insight into today's marketplace.
