5.0 out of 5 stars A must for collectors of English Victorian Plate! 24 Mar. 2001
By Phillip Pessar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you collect English Victorian silver plate this book is a must. It has the most comprehensive directory of English silver plate makers marks I have ever seen. There are also Sheffield Plate marks which could come in handy if you can not decide if your piece might be electroplate or Sheffield Plate. If you collect American plate this book is not for you as there is little info on American marks.

3.0 out of 5 stars FAIR BOOK 23 Feb. 2003
By Hillbilly1956 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was disappointed in the miniscule amount of information provided in this book. There are hundreds of marks, but almost no information that is helpful. With that said, I am a beginner, so my opinion might not be the best to rely on, but I would certainly not recommend this book for beginners like myself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marks a Plenty 23 Aug. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A wonderful reference guide. Within minutes, I was able to ID two pieces quickly and easily. Easy to use and very handy to carry with you to auctions and yard sales. It could contain some more dates specific to makers. All in all, a useful tool for the price!
5.0 out of 5 stars An essential reference for EPNS collectors 22 Mar. 2008
By Genevieve Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This reference book provides illustrations of the makers marks that were used by the more important producers of EPNS, old Sheffield plate and close plate in England from 1784 onwards. For each mark, the maker's name, location and the years in which the mark was used are given, allowing these plated items to be approximately dated.

Like another book in the "Dealer Guide" series, English Silver Hallmarks, this book is very clearly set out. As is pointed out on the back of this book, the marks in this book are arranged in two sections: one section for marks based on names or initials, where the marks are arranged alphabetically, and the second for pictorial marks where marks are arranged into groups of similar designs. This arrangement makes if very easy to find what you are looking for.

This book is a must for all collectors of EPNS and similar plated items.
5.0 out of 5 stars I HAVE A DOUBT 4 Aug. 2011
By Anabel Gallardo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a question, what is the difference between this book and another $ 91, there is much difference in price. And I find difertencias about it. May help, and clear my doubt? There are only two published books, about the same, but the price is very different.
