Description - Royal Ruby by Philip Hooper

Royal Ruby features 250 color photographs, 12 factory bulletins, and numerous catalog references to document Anchor Hocking's red glassware, which has fascinated collectors for years. First manufactured in the late 1930s, Anchor Hocking produced a multitude of Royal Ruby glassware items over the next fifty years. Many of the pieces in this book have never been included in any reference work, and some are experimental/test pieces never mass produced. Some of the more uncommon patterns detailed include High Point, Whirly Twirly, Fairfield, Classic, Berwick, Beverly, Shell, Fortune, and Rainflower. A detailed price guide, combined with a multitude of detailed photographs, make this a necessary reference for all Royal Ruby glass collectors.
