This is an older hardbound reference book titled Children’s Glass Dishes, China, and Furniture. It was written by Doris Anderson Lechler. Consisting mostly of black and white photographs and written text, it is an extensive reference tool. From miniature pieces of elegant glassware and toy glass dish sets to porcelains and china to fabulous little piece of furniture this book gives us a good view of little childhood collectibles. It has an enormous amount of “pertinent data” like production dates, pattern names, available colors and company information. It also provides measurements to clarify the size of these small objects. The book has 238 glossy pages including a price reference guide in the back. It was copyrighted in 1983 by the author with Updated Vales in 1991. and it was published by Collector Books, a Division of Schroeder Publishing Company Inc.. The prices may not be current but they are still excellent reference guides with regards to rarity and documentation. The original price was $19.95. This was apparently part of a library’s inventory as it has a library checkout card attached to the inside front cover. It appears that it was never checked out.
The book measures about 8 7/8” by 11 ¼” by ¾”. It is in good condition with crisp and clean pages and a tight spine. The cover has light scuff wear and minimal edge and corner wear. The spine edge does appear to be faded.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
