The head of Sotheby's silver department shares the wealth of his experience in this indispensable price guide. 1,172 items have been selected, photographed, discussed and given a value. The sections are arranged alphabetically, beginning with argyles and ending with wine related articles, so the book is easy to use, and within each main subject the pieces are arranged chronologically so that the developing styles may be clearly understood.

The majority of collectable antique silver was used by the middle classes and today's collector clearly needs to understand the varying qualities of production that are encountered if he is to buy wisely and avoid pitfalls. This is the key book for discerning silver collectors and includes prices in Sterling and US Dollar.
