This is the most comprehensive book yet published on twentieth century British glass with hitherto unpublished catalogues, contemporary photographs and hundred of objects grouped to assist collectors with identification. The majority of the items, from private and public collections, are illustrated for the first time.

The book covers everything from Art Nouveau and Art Deco masterpieces to the now much ignored Pyrex ovenware and everything in between from engraving, cameo glass and paperweights. Chapters focus on the effects of the two world wars, special features look at individual designers including Keith Murray, while major exhibitions including the Festival of Britain in 1951 are fully discussed. Biographical sections look at post-war designers including Geoffrey Baxter, Ronald Stennett-Willson and Frank Thrower.
