Format: Hardcover
Definitely THE most essential reference books which should be on the bookshelf of every serious collector, covering that important period of Victorian and Edwardian gold and silver which all collectors are likely to encounter these days. Not only do the dates covered by the 'Directory' follow on most appropriately where A.G. Grimwade's 'London Goldsmiths' ends, the biographies of the gold/silversmiths included up to 1914 are carried forward up to the present day. Both volumes are beautifully presented and extremely well researched and detailed, whilst the 16,000 plus photographed makers' marks which are presented in Vol. 2 must surely answer every problem of identification one could ever ask. Yes, an absolute must.

This book is amazing. It is a MUST for any reference library! Everything and anything one could possible have a question for silver during this time period is here.

If can't find this in the store then look at your library. I can't speak highly enough about this book. I have used it for years and never saw one better!

An essential work to have a complete reference of silver hallmarks of the UK in addition to the Jackson's and Grimwade works on the earlier period marks.
