Using a variety of colorful and delightful photographs, “Collecting Head Vases” is a must for the niche hobby of novelty sculpture.

Experienced collector and author David Barron has produced this much-needed book on head vases. Featuring several thousand head vases in more than 1,500 color photographs, many never before seen in any publication, the book contains primarily lady heads but also features other types of miscellaneous head vases - clowns, animals, children, Madonna figures, and others. Tips and hints for collectors, information on how to make repairs and remove crazing, and how to spot reproductions and fakes are among the special sections in the book. A chapter on the annual head vase convention with information and photographs is included, as well as a quick reference guide to the numbers on the bottoms of the vases. 2006 values.
