This book is a practical guide. It is neither a scientific book nor a comprehensive catalogue.It is a book about twenty years experience in buying and selling Gallé, Daum and Schneider glass.

This book explains step by step what you need to know about glass and how to examine a vase in order to distinguish whether it is damaged, genuine or fake. If you read this book and follows its lessons, it may help save a lot of disappointment, irritation and money because you will then be able to determine the condition of the vase before making a purchase.

More than five hundred pictures explain in a simple and clear manner how and what to look for. Buyers always tend to look at the top of a vase but often forget to look at its bottom, to check the side or even the handles. Everything that could have happened to a vase is clarified.

Of course no two vases are the same and with each and every vase that is being studied, these guidelines need to be followed.

Forgers will possibly consult this book in order to adapt their techniques. It will then become even more difficult for us to discover their forgery. After having studied this book carefully you will hopefully be prevented from losing money on a worthless piece.

This book helps explain what you ought to know before you purchase a French art glass vase. It describes what you should be looking for and all the hidden traps. You will be able to discover whether a vase has been altered, reduced in size or whether it is a fake or genuine.

It is possible that you could have in your collection a diminished vase or a reproduction without realising it.

The photographs of genuine vases illustrated in this book are marked with a green dot whilst the photographs of imperfect or fake vases are marked with a red triangle.

Mrs Tiny Esveld has gained more than 20 years of experience in French art nouveau glass and furniture. She is a member of VHOK in The Netherlands (the Dutch antique dealers association), the international CINOA and the British LAPADA.When you start collecting glass it is of importance that you do it from the hart. Not because it is fashionable or a good financial investment. No, collect because of the beauty of the object. You should fall in love with it and consider it the most beautiful piece in the world. Should it not be so that you can admire it with tender loving care and conserve it for coming generations ?

Once infected with the virus of collecting glass, your life is enriched with a fulfilling pastime. Weekend are dedicated to finding that one missing piece. On holidays potential sources are visited with the hope of encountering that one piece that is missing. Finding that rare piece is an ever lasting adrenalin kick one seldom forgets. A collection is never complete and is always subject to improvement. That is the trill of collecting. In your hunger for pieces that compliment your collection be aware off not purchasing pieces that are not worth the value of the raw material alone. In this book I have outlined some pitfalls for the novice collector that should be noted when buying art nouveau and art deco glassware.
