Silver Flatware: English, Irish And Scottish

Ian Pickford takes a wide-ranging look at flatware patterns and, at the same time, discusses in deatil flatware makers, stylistic developments, quality, repairs, fakes, forgeries and alterations as well as the marking of flatware. A large part of the book is devoted, in reference form, to the patterns themselves. Silver flatware is highly collectable and this is the standard work of reference.

This book was recommended to me by an eBay seller in England. It is a wonderful resource for anybody who wants to learn about antique English sterling flatware. It provides text and photos about most of the more common patterns and their variants. Definitely worth adding to the library of any collector of English sterling flatware.

I believe this is an important book.. Most silver books cover a wide range of silver items, The impression left is that there is not such a lot to say about flatware, this book shows that this view is incorrect. I now see collecting flatware as a specialist area of silver collecting.

An essential reference tool for any person who needs reliable information about British silver -- silver dealer, collector, museum curator, etc. Text and photographs are arranged in a commonsense, useful way and the result is a very easy-to-use research tool. One can actually enjoy gaining a broad and useful education in its subject simply by reading the well-written narrative from beginning to end. There is nothing stodgy or pedantic about it: It is definitive, but totally practical. Surely, among the world's specialists on silver, Ian Pickford 's is the final word.
