Lee, Ruth Webb.
Antique Fakes & Reproductions.

Wellesley Hills Lee Publications: 1950/1966. 8th printing revised edition.

An invaluable guide to reproductions of early American and other antique glass which were being produced in Mexico and other places in the early decades of this century. Includes both blown and pressed glass, flasks, milk glass, bohemian glass, Sandwich-type glass and paperweights, as well as chapters on silver, ceramics, metalware, and mechanical banks. Kirk Nelson (in Ames & Ward) notes- "Lee's book provides an intelligent approach to the problem of fakes and reproductions and a record of specific pieces that will be even more deceptive now that they have aged half a century".

Hardcover. 6"x9", 317 pages, 166 b/w plates, dj a little wear, jacket with light soil and a small label removed from the spine, but a nice copy.
