Overview

The single most important comprehensive silver reference work.

The classic work on British gold and silver hallmarks.

Indispensable to all collectors and dealers of antique silver.

Sir Charles Jackson's English Goldsmiths and their Marks is the classic reference work on British antique silver hallmarks. First written in 1905 and last revised in 1921, it is a mammoth endeavour which has remained in print ever since. It is still considered indispensable by silver collectors and dealers, despite shortcomings due to its age. This major new edition has been compiled by a team of distinguished experts to take account of the vast store of information which has been unearthed as a result of much detailed and wide ranging research over the last seventy years.

The text has been extensively updated with over 10,000 corrections and an enormous amount of entirely new material. For example, there are over 1,000 corrections to London eighteenth century makers' marks alone. Many ideas and attributions have changed since Jackson assembled his work and some of the makers he overlooked are now known to be of major significance.

There are not many standard reference works which survive for eighty years without being displaced. This revised edition reconfirms Jackson's status as the bible for all antique silver enthusiasts and a key reference for dealers, scholars and collectors.

Ian Pickford heads the editorial team of experts. Specializing in London makers, he is both a freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and the City of London. He is author of Silver Flatware: English, Irish and Scottish 1660-1980 and a regular member of the Antiques Roadshow. Each of the other editorial team members is the leading expert on his particular assay office.
