The first book to explore fully the dramatic history and development of the American silver industry, Silver in America chronicles the work of such internationally known firms as Tiffany, Gorham, Meriden Britannia, and Reed & Barton along with that of such notable makers as Whiting, Wendt, Wood & Hughes, Shiebler, and Gale. Placing the finest creations of these and many other silversmiths in the context of the sumptuous dining and gift-giving rituals of the 19th century, and including 246 rich illustrations, it examines production, marketing, consumption, and design.
