This extremely rare, out-of-print book is a definitive identification guide to American art glass lighting shades.

COLLECTING ART NOUVEAU SHADES by Darrah L. Roberts, Wallace Homestead Book Co., IA, 1972 First Edition.

230 shades are pictured in color and black-and-white and described in-depth in this scholarly work. The book’s narrative is exceptional, and unlike Robert’s pictorial guide to shades, this text reviews the background and history of the various Art Nouveau shade manufacturers. Covered by chapter are: Steuben Glass Works (Red, Green, Brown, Blue and Gold Aurene; Yellow and Platinum Iridescent; Tyrian, Verre de Soie or VDS; Alabaster, Calcite and Ivrene); Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company (Red, Green, Blue, Platinum, Gold, Yellow, and Brown Iridescent; Opal Glass); Tiffany Glass Company (Red, Green, Brown, Yellow and Platinum Iridescent Favrile Glass; Blue and Gold Lustre Favrile Glass; Cypriote, and Reactive Glass); Lustre Art Glass Company; The Vineland Flint Glass Works (Durand Shades and Crackle Glass); Fostoria Glass Company (Iris); The Decorations (Feathered, Pulled Feather and Peacock Feather Pattern; Drape; Coiled and Fishnet Pattern; King Tut, Damascene and King Tut Type Motif; The Broken Thread or “Zipper” pattern; Clinging Vine; and more); The Color Plates; Collecting; Signatures (The Steuben fleur-de-lis; Quezal; Tiffany; Lustre Art; Durand and Fostoria [Iris]; and Identifying Unsigned Shade); Relative Value and Merit; Usage; Epilogue; Bibliography; and Shade Index. This book is a collector’s item in itself and would make a wonderful addition to the permanent reference library of the collector, dealer, or historian of art glass shades.
