This book provides a detailed classification of all the varieties of dumps, and is unequalled as a collector's guide to these unique English folk art antiques. This book is the most complete guide to English bottle glass dumps, doorstops and paperweights ever published. It contains almost 500 colour photographs ranging from Kilner bubble dumps from the 1830s, to elaborate floral ornaments and sulphide inclusions from the early 1900s. Of particular interest to the serious collector will be the 15 examples of rare garnitures (sets of three dumps), several examples of very rare Redfearn weights, an exceptionally large variety of sulphide inclusions, dumps with coloured glass centres to their flowers, flowers with blue or gold petals, and many other rarities and curiosities. There are examples in green, turquoise, blue, amber and amethyst glass. The book includes information on dump damage and restoration, and how to assess and value dumps, together with a price guide.
