Illustrated Dictionary of Silverware

Overview

Throughout history the attraction of owning silverware has been based both on itsaesthetic qualities and on economic considerations: not only can silver be fashioned into an enormous variety of articles, but regardless of changes in taste and fashion silverware retains its intrinsic value as bullion. Articles made of silver may be treasured for their historical associations, as heirlooms, as the work of an eminent maker or designer, or in some cases simply as readily collectable articles that were formerly in ...

Overview

Throughout history the attraction of owning silverware has been based both on itsaesthetic qualities and on economic considerations: not only can silver be fashioned into an enormous variety of articles, but regardless of changes in taste and fashion silverware retains its intrinsic value as bullion. Articles made of silver may be treasured for their historical associations, as heirlooms, as the work of an eminent maker or designer, or in some cases simply as readily collectable articles that were formerly in everyday use. This dictionary is devoted to the silverware of Great Britain since around 1500 (including Ireland up to 1921) and North America from the Colonial era to the present. It is comprehensively illustrated and contains 2,373 entries, including definitions of types of article, specific named examples, styles, methods of fabrication and decoration, and biographical entries. Cross-references lead the reader to related topics, and bibliographical citations provide a guide for further reading on specific topics or important pieces.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Newman has provided a valuable addition to the literature on silver treasures and collectibles. Abundantly illustrated with fine examples relating to the detailed text, this dictionary combines historical information about various terms, techniques, and major designers/makers with descriptive entries of common and unique silver objects used for domestic, religious, and commemorative purposes. Citations cover British and North American objects from 1500 to the present and include bibliographic sources for selected entries when appropriate. Recommended for most libraries, especially those emphasizing the decorative arts. Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
