McKee Kitchen Glass of the Depression Years By Barbara E. Mauzy: Kitschy Collector Book Review

Kitchen Collectors Will Love This Reference Book On McKee Kitchen Glass By Barbara E. Mauzy

McKee Kitchen Glass of the Depression Years
. is another invaluable kitchen price guide and resource book written by Barbara E. Mauzy and published by Schiffer Publishing. This 144 page hard cover guide shows extremely well photographed examples of these sought after kitchen collectibles. This book is an excellent contribution to the literature on McKee Kitchen Glass of the Depression Years and I thank the author for writing this book.

Bonus: I also was tickled pink to learn that Amazon had paired McKee Kitchen Glass of the Depression Years with my book Hot Kitchen Collectibles of the 30s, 40s, 50s. I feel like I am in such good company.

Book Description

A popular theme of collecting is kitchen glass: bowls, reamers, measuring cups, shakers, and more. During the 1930s McKee Glass Company created some of today’s most interesting and sought-after designs. This new book offers historical insight into the McKee Glass Company and vivid photography to present its diverse, multi-colored products. Thousands of items are shown and identified, each with measurements and values given in the captions.

The book is organized by the company’s wide range of color and their variations, making it a useful tool for identification and evaluation, allowing readers to do both easily. In addition to the kitchen glass, two McKee dinnerware patterns are included. A bibliography and index complete this great reference book.
