Identifying Antique Paperweights - Millefiori (Revised Edition)
by George N. Kulles

This is a revised edition of the first book by George Kulles on the subject of identifying antique paperweights.  It focuses on millefiori canes and their role in identifying 19th century antique paperweights from the major glass factories.  It is full of information and hints and is a must have book for the collector of antique paperweights.

The revised edition contains new information that has been discovered since the original was written.  It has also been reorganized to place photographs next to the drawings.  This makes the book easier to use.
