Silver and Gold Marks of England, Scotland and Ireland is a must for all serious collectors of silver. Especially good for early silver; makers and assay marks. My first copy purchased in 1968 got 'lost' when we moved house 3 years ago, I am unable to come to a satisfactory decision about silver marks until I have consulted Jacksons, so have now invested in the new edition. This edition has been brought up to date by Ian Pickford - an acknowledged silver expert.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Source 2 May 2011
By heretic666 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
If, as I have you have taken a peek into the back room of many auction houses you will find what I have called "the Holy Trinity" . These are Goddens Encyclopaedia of marks etc, Brittons Old clocks and watches, and this tome. No lightwight and its own bulk makes it liable to fall to pieces, but the Holy Trinity all suffer from that fate, not from obesity but from usage. Usage as in contant referral till the thing is grimey and falling to pieces just as the best reference books should be. As essential as a X 10 magnification jewellers loupe, these two tools will pay for themselves many times over.
A must for the professional and any serious collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars A strange and wonderful tale 10 May 2012
By Peasant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Only the British have a comprehensive, dateable system for marking and guaranteeing the quality of silver. Set up in the days of the medieval guilds, and continued through war, plague and revolution, it provides the collector with a womderful opportunity to learn about a specialist field of antiques using the information encoded on the items themselves.

This, the "Big Jackson" (as opposed to the "Pocket Jackson", Jackson's Hallmarks: English, Scottish, Irish Silver and Gold Marks from 1300 to the Present Day), yields up a huge amount of information painlessly and with great efficiency. Sit there with the battered teaspoon you've just pulled out of cardboard box at a bootfair - or the socking great teapot you've inherited from Auntie Flo - and in a few minutes you'll know where it was made, and when, and by who.

There is a great romance in this tale, and some of the details are crammed, along with the technical data, into this book. And when you're bored with checking up the family silver, look at the names on one of the many lists of silversmiths! Eat your heart out, Dickens, you never invented the like of Dike Impey, Ebenezer Cocker (I've got one of his spoons), Marmaduke Daintry, Magdalen Feline, Dinah Gamon (yes, there are a surprising number of ladies, about 5-10% in the 18th century)), Mordecai Fox and Jackson Bumries. Whole dynasties can be traced, widows inheriting a husband's workshop and passing it on to their children, partnerships setting up and dissolving, in a world of Quakers, Huguenots and Flemish incomers. The magic of British silver is that we can trace all of this.
