Synopsis: Currently residing in Casselberry, Floriad, George Huemmer's main hobby is researching glassware and manufacturing companies of glass. With the publication of his heavily researched compendium, "Knowledge of Pressed Ware: Trademarks, Labels, and Logos on U.S.A. Glass Companies" antique dealers and pressed war glass collectors now have a dependable and up-to-date reference that is as comprehensive as it is 'user friendly' in organization and presentation.

Critique: Beautifully and profusely illustrated throughout with full color photography, "Knowledge of Pressed Ware: Trademarks, Labels, and Logos on U.S.A. Glass Companies" is especially and unreservedly recommended for personal, professional, community, and academic library Antiques & Collectibles reference collections. It should be noted for personal use that "Knowledge of Pressed Ware: Trademarks, Labels, and Logos on U.S.A. Glass Companies" is also readily available in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.99).
