More items have been manufactured during the Twentieth Century than in all the previous centuries combined. Information on their production is sought by many people. Just in the last decade, the emergence of the Antiques Roadshow and E-Bay has renewed a fascination for antiques and collectibles not only in buyers and traders, but also in the general public. Made in the Twentieth Century is a guide designed to help everyone from dealers to laypeople quickly establish the approximate production date of most twentieth century manufactured items. By relating the information in this book to the various clues provided by the object you are trying to date, it should be possible to narrow down the time frame of possible production, in many cases, to within several years of manufacture.It is not only an indispensable resource for set designers, individual collectors, antique sellers, and information desks at libraries, but also a necessity. Divided into two areas, the first is basic information that relates to many items and the second is specialized information that relates to various areas of collecting or research. Throughout the book are "caution notes" to help keep the reader from misinterpreting the information.
