This encyclopedic new edition of 'The Decanter', the result of nearly 20 years research, is the most approachable history of fine glassmaking ever published.

In presenting the subject across a broad timescale - spanning ancient Mesopotamia to the modern day, The Decanter explores the history of glassmaking from a decanter perspective. The engaging, accessible text explores the stylistic & technical evolution of fine glassmaking alongside its influences & social uses.

The book comprises full-colour 544 pages, 165,000 words & 2,650 images that illustrate over 3,500 examples. The images have been drawn from a stock of 10,000s, from institutions & private collections.
