Many books have been written on Depression Era kitchenware and dinnerware, yet none have focused on the mass-produced opaque green glassware known as jadite. Co-written by expert antiques dealers Joe Keller and David Ross, Jadite: An Identification And Price Guide informatively examines and showcases Jadeite dinnerware from the 1930s to the mid 1970s.

Delphite & Jadite: A Pocket Guide (Schiffer Book for Collectors). This collector's book is a comprehensive and valuable reference. My only criticism is the lighting used in the photos. Joe Keller and David Ross are antiques dealers specializing in 20th century American dinnerware. They set up at many major antique shows in the Northeast, including The Triple Pier Show, Atlantique City, and Brimfield. Hardcover: 176 pages. Many of the various patterns and details are difficult to easily discern. It could have been much improved with better back-lighting. This is, however, the collector's bible for Jadite.

Many books have been written on Depression Era kitchenware and dinnerware, yet none have focused on the mass-produced opaque green glassware known as jadite. This book attempts to bring together the works of the three major glass companies that produced jadite: McKee, Jeannette, and Anchor Hocking. Produced from the early 1930s until the mid-1970s, jadite has rapidly become one of today's hottest collectibles. In addition to numerous dinnerware patterns, all sorts of jadite kitchenware was produced, including canisters, shakers, mixing bowls, and ovenware. Jadite items were also made for the rest of the home, including lamps, bathroom items, and ashtrays. The authors have produced a book which identifies over a thousand jadite pieces with more than 500 photos and current values., 491 color photos, 8 1/2" x 11", Price Guide

While a very good source of information, this book is far from encyclopedic.

I've been able to use it to get a clue as to the more obscure pieces of jade-ite I've collected, and that's a plus.

However, missing from this book are dimensions and identifying information to help discern from original pieces from more recent reproductions. Some of the descriptions are ambiguous & I have found better sources on the internet.

The photography is also lacking, in that when text is lacking, one relies more heavily upon visual information. With only one view of an item, and a short blurb stating the obvious, this book made me kind of cranky -____-

For instance...

On page 136, you will find a hand beater with a small crock below it. After an exhaustive internet search I found the beater that goes with the crock. It is an A&J Hand Held Mixer with splash guard / shield Stamped "A&J" "Made in USA" and "Patent Oct 9 1923". However, the crock is not marked.

You guessed it. I own the crock and was trying to locate it's mate. While I credit this book with cluing me in on this mysterious piece that previously I thought was a flower pot, trying to figure out who it's mate was, wasn't easy.

It has a tiny recessed lip that one would guess allows for a lid of some kind to drop right down and seat well across the top of the piece.

With this book, I was able to match it's general shape to the beater & crock pictured on p.136. After looking through at all the flower pots in the book and finding no matches, then looking all over the internet yielded no matches, I surmised it was in actuality the beater crock.

Reamers are also ambiguously described, no dimensions are given, photography also lacks multiple views -___-
It also only hints at what might indicate reproduction pieces.

To sum up, I won't be returning the book, but it leaves a collector, who in 2014, requires more information other than a picture and a blurb, as I said before, cranky.

Then again, maybe it's just me, lol.

My exposure to the wonderful world of Jadite is very recent. In fact, Jadite picked me I did NOT pick Jadite! While I have learned most of what I know off the Internet, a complete and well illustrated collector's guide for the bookshelf was imperative. This edition, with its plethora of illustrations also makes it an essential companion on those Jadite forays to antique shops.

This collector's book is a comprehensive and valuable reference. My only criticism is the lighting used in the photos. Many of the various patterns and details are difficult to easily discern. It could have been much improved with better back-lighting.

This is, however, the collector's bible for Jadite. And, at Amazon's low price for a large folio hardcover book, DO NOT put off ordering your copy! It is a beautiful edition for a collector or dealer.

I bought this book because of the stellar reviews regarding organization, identification and pricing and have really been disappointed. The photography is great and helps with identification WHEN you eventually find what you're looking for. I do not find the book organized in a manner to make identification easy. As an example, I was just looking for a 9 3/4 mixing bowl. Bowls are scattered all over the book. At a minimum, there should have been a page or two with available patterns making it easy to at least look the pattern up in the index once it was identified. Identification of the Jeannette Concentric Ring pattern involved flipping through the entire book. Then, there is the matter of pricing. If this bowl is indeed worth $150-$175, why is it easily found on ebay as having been sold for $60? I do understand pricing varies depending on the quality, but I am seeing no terrible imperfections in the $60 piece. I am using this as only one example of many others I've found being sold far under the value suggested in the book.

I love the photography of the book, but it is a disappointment so far as fulfilling the purpose I purchased it for - helping a new collector identify and price pieces she is interested in.

This book is a must have for both the collector and dealer of Jadite glassware. Hundreds of color photos with descriptions and prices for the items.

The book even has a section on reproduction Jadite and what to look out for. I give this book 5 stars. Fantastic book, all color glossy pages. Huge assortment of Jadite in this book. I recommend this book very highly. Thank you.
