As more and more people feel the urge to possess objects of age or beauty, so the prices of antiques soar beyond the pockets of many people. Bottles, however, have remained comparatively inexpensive. In Victorian times, our forebears packed everything from tea to hair restorer in glass bottles, and they discarded them with their household refuse. In dumps all over Britain, these bottles are waiting to be dug up, each non-machine-made bottle a collector's item. This book describes the development of bottles of all sorts and illustrates over two hundred examples.

Antique Glass Bottles

Their History and Evolution (1500-1850) : a Comprehensive, Illustrated Guide, with a World-wide Bibliography of Glass Bottles

Over the last 30 years Victoria Crowe, one of Scotland's leading painters, has established herself as a painter whose work is instantly recognisable. This book covers her full range - landscape, still lifes, portraits, self-portraits and interiors - but much of her work defies such precise catogorisation. She has been described as 'one of the most vital and original figurative painters currently at work in Scotland'. An essay by art historian and critic Colin Bailey, illustrated by Crowe's most recent paintings, sets her work in context. Then follows a chronological path through her life and work, told in her own highly individual words, but punctuated by the voices of critics. It concludes close in time to where it started, thus forming a cyclical link, a theme that runs as a constant thread throughout the work itself. This is a personal journey spanning over 30 years, in which life efents are transmuted into painted images.
