5.0 out of 5 stars American silver: Who made it and When, 1 Oct. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kovels' American Silver Marks (Hardcover)
This book is extremely useful for identifying American silver makers , particularly for the 19th and 20th centuries. The invaluable feature is the way it lists successive marks for each maker and dates the use of each mark. If you feel lost without the date letters you find on British assay marks, then this book provides an answer. Few American makers had their own date marks but they seem to have go in and out of business, or changed their mark often enough, that you can identify a fairly short period during which some item of American silver was made. Put this together with the shape, style and decoration and you can feel comfortable with identifying the "who" and "when" of American silver.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" for the collector of American Antique silver, 4 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Kovels' American Silver Marks (Hardcover)
While not the definitive reference that Jackson's book is on English silver, the Kovels do provide an extensive listing of American silversmiths and manufacturers. A person cannot be a serious collector of American antique silver without this book.
