Country House Silver at Dunham Massey
Country House Silver at Dunham Massey
by James Lomax
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £40.00

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT REFERENCE BOOK, 18 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent reference book very similar but not quite as good as the Ickworth Collection book. It is still however an most valuable source of information regarding mainly the plate for the dining table. Photography and text excellent. A worthwhile purchase for anyone collecting, studying, trade or museum professional.

Silver for Entertaining: The Ickworth Collection

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRULY BRILLIANT REFERENCE BOOK, 18 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a truly wonderful book and probably the only one concerning silver for the table. I have been wanting a reference book covering this aspect of dining room and entertaining and this really does fulfil that want. The photography and text are excellent and informative, giving a full history of the family, when and who ordered the silver and who from, so this book covers the full gambit, melting down and re-fashioning, second hand purchases, new commissions, mostly from the likes of Frederick and Charles Kandler and Paul de Lamerie during the 18th century and other great silversmiths throughout the 16th, 17th 18th and 19th centuries. It gives the cost per ounce of silver and the price for fashioning, why the silver was being ordered, Diplomatic allowances and plate for specific dinners as well as normal daily requirements even down to specific orders for the kitchen Chef, all this information was kept in detailed ledgers, this is why the book is so fascinating. For the silver collecting enthusiast, trade professional or museum staff this will be an invaluable source of reference.

This very good and real, genuine Cinnamon is not the common place spice that is sold in supermarkets which is not real cinnamon, this is the real McCoy and is shipped direct from the plantation in Sri Lanka. It tastes wonderful and has all the health benefits associated with real Cinnamon.

At Home with Carolyne Roehm
by Carolyne Roehm
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A GLORIOUS BOOK TO DROOL OVER, 2 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A glorious book filled with some wonderful photography and showing some very nice set tables set with antique porcelain, silver flatware and first quality crystal. This is how exceedingly rich people with the highest taste live, stemware that costs over £200 per glass is what I would call exceedingly rich as to have a dozen, plus spares and in different sizes and not be too bothered if one or two got broken to me, is in the rich mans world.
However, most of the table settings are easily adaptable to lesser pockets and with flair can look just as spectacular and therefore this book offers infinite style concepts to copy, so all in all, this is a wonderful book to drool over with a long coffee.

by Geoffrey B. Seddon
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DEFINITIVE BOOK, 2 Jan. 2017
A truly excellent resource for researching Jacobite period glasses and probably the definitive book available as information is somewhat scarce for this niche area of glass collecting.
