Pocket Guide to Depression Glass & More: 1920s-1960s: Identification & Values [PCKT GT DEPRESSION GLASS &-16E] This handy little guide is good to keep in your car or stash in your briefcase if you want to do some spur of the moment depression glass hunting. It's smaller than the large encyclopedia and does not include as many patterns as the bigger encyclopedia. It does have several patterns from the 1940s-60s including Fire King. The downside of this pocket guide is that it omits many pieces and some colors from the patterns.
