Phaidon Guide to Silver
This comprehensive survey of the silver of the western worid has been carefully planned to give the reader an understanding of the essential qualities and varied craftsmanship of both antique and modern silver.

It traces the development of styles in Europe and America from the earliest times, outlining general trends and explaining national characteristics

A large part of the book is devoted to a close examination of all kinds of silver, to guide the reader in identifying use and date, from Church plate to toilet articles, massive banquetting ware to trinkets and small collectables, candlesticks, drinking vessels and cutlery.

Photographs and drawings show more than 400 different objects, the majority reproduced in color, and while many fine and rare pieces are illustrated the emphasis is placed upon silver which is more readily available making this an invaluable recognition guide for the collector.
The clear exposition of techniques, decorative styles and silver marks will be easily understood by the non-specialist making this a perfect introduction to the subject for the new enthusiast as well as a reference book which will be consulted repeatedly

The author, Margaret Holland, was born in the United States and has a wide knowledge of silver on both sides of the Atlantic.
A regular contributor to antique and art journals in Britain and America she is the author of a specialist study on English provincial work as well as more general books on silver.
