Library Journal - Library Journal
This elegant catalog of works from the collection of the National Museum of Women in the Arts highlights the careers of 36 women silversmiths from the late 17th to the early 19th centuries in Britain and Ireland. Glanville's opening essay focuses on the goldsmiths' trade, which included silversmiths, and on the role of such women as Hester Bateman, Louisa Courtauld, Rebecca Emes, Elizabeth Godfrey, Dorothy Langlands, and others in this ``gentleman's'' profession. Goldsborough then discusses the artifacts these women produced, from drinking vessels, to flatware, to tea and coffee services. Brief biographical listings of approximately 300 women who had registered marks or who have been identified as artisans include their trade classification, location of activity, husband's name and classification, and other pertinent information. The volume concludes with illustrations of the registered marks of the women in this collection. Highly recommended.-- Stephen Allan Patrick, East Tennessee State Univ. Lib., Johnson City
