“The collection presents a wide-ranging survey of the evolution of styles and decoration from 1550 to 1850. The contributions made by foreign craftsmen to silver produced in London in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are discussed, as is the distinctive silverware made in Dublin and Edinburgh, and in English provincial centers such as Exeter and Newcastle. This catalogue also paints a vivid portrait of collecting decorative arts in America during the last hundred years.”–BOOK JACKET.
