The captions of the almost 2,000 color photographs include the title of the piece, size variations, where made, reproduction information, rarity rating, and current collector value. A brief introduction, history, and collector notes are included. Glass ornaments of all types are featured: animals, beads, Santas, trees, buildings, crosses, food, patriotic items, and much more. There are not only fabric ornaments, but wax, metal, Sebnitz, and others. There are also many miscellaneous Christmas collectibles featured, including lighting, candy containers, plaques, dolls, and other figures and decorations.
George Johnson's book on Christmas ornaments adds a nice touch to any collector's bookshelf. This new volume is largely about glass ornaments and happily includes a wide range of them. Other chapters deal with Dresden ornaments, plus paper, wax, fabric, metal, and plastic decorations. Additionally there are sections on electric lighting, tree tops, and stands. Altogether there are nearly 2,000 full color photos with descriptions and values.
