Unfortunately the book entries end (was published) in 2004 and was not updated, while Steuben ended in 2011. I was told that the possibility of an update is NOT likely. So a lot of stuff is missing. However, one can learn from this book. For ex. Several smaller pieces which were once LE (limited editions) were being re-made as recently as 2011, and not as LE's. THAT was a real revelation. Several gorgeous larger pieces were made more recently in places like Portugal, and they are not in the book that way. Several larger pieces, more recently were stamped, pressed, and not made totally off-hand, although they apparently were hand-finished.

Also, the prices in the book are soooo much lower that what Steuben was selling the stuff for during their MAJOR end-of-life sale. It was a shocker. And though Steuben kept lowering the prices, they were still so much more than what the book had them for.

And, the organization of this book is odd. There are dedicated sections to certain types of items, but the definitions are not very clear as to what these distinctions are!? a bit hard to figure out unless you spend time going through carefully. It took me quite a while to figure out the re-issue of the LE's for example!

Lovely, timeless photos of gorgeous glass make it a special book. Dear old Steuben...must be turning in his grave.

Buy it if you want to see the classic, classy Steuben, which was once a big attraction on NY's Fifth Ave...the gift to kings, heads of state, and popes...as HAND-MADE IN AMERICAN, many pieces often unique.

I myself bought some of these newer, and a couple of the older style pieces, and they're ALL still beautiful, crystal clear glass, with ATTITUDE!

I already didi this once before. Book was as expected, brand new and still in plastic wrap. Shipping was fast and as expected.

An excellent and professional transaction
This book is a must have for the collector and antique dealer of vintage Steuben crystal glass. Since Steuben has closed up this book will become more valuable over time and harder to find. Thousands of photos in this book along with values make this a must have book for your collection. Nice large book, fantastic cover. I highly recommend this book. Thank you
