ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SILHOUETTE COLLECTIBLES ON GLASS by Shirley Mace, Shadow
Enterprises, MN, 1992.
Hundreds of color photographs with identifying captions highlight this early
out-of-print book which provides a pictorial survey of silhouette pictures.
Silhouette pictures as defined in this book are the colored pictures that are
painted on the back side of the glass. This is also known as reverse painting
on glass. They are usually black, but white, red, blue, rose or a combination
of colors is also used. The subjects include children, couples, birds, dogs,
horses, etc.” ”Silhouettes were sold in variety stores, dime stores, novelty
stores or given as promotional gifts from the 1920s through the 1950s.” This
comprehensive pictorial guide identifies many of the makers of this glass and
provides information on values [see date of publication].
