Crackle glass has become popular in the field of twentieth-century glass collecting. Taking its name from the crackle-like appearance of the glass, a finish caused by dipping the hot piece of hand-blown glass into cooling water, the majority of this highly collectible glass was made by West Virginian companies such as Blenko, Pilgrim, and Rainbow, and Depression Era companies Tiffin, Morgantown, and Duncan. This volume showcases more than 400 color photos of crackle glass along with company catalog pages, manufacturers' information, an essay on glass blowing, detailed captions, an up-to-date price guide, bibliography, and index. It is a must for students, collectors, and dealers of glasswares.
