Antique silver is one of the oldest and best loved collecting subjects. At the top end of the quality scale, the work that went into making a fine piece was of an extremely high order. However, the majority of silver was used in the middle levels of British society and the collector has clearly to understand the varying qualities of production that he encounters if he is to buy well and avoid inferior pieces.

I am 57 year old native Virginian whose family came here in the early 1600s. I have collected since my early teens from a mostly rural area where many would think there would not be a lot of collecting possible but I found that not to be true. There is a link between collecting an addiction but is is just the thrill of finding each and every piece that you can. For years I seldom sold a piece but when I did I found that same thrill for the second time. It was not unusual to sell a piece for four or five times what I had paid. From my history loving family I have had a lot of help as they will often tell me what they have seen so that I can go back and make a deal on it. My wife now goes out once or twice a week to help me and often ended up selling as well. The selling part is important as it enables me to collect pieces I would never sell without taking away money from our family budget. It has become a lifestyle which has goes into everyday life as well as I try to get the best deal on everything. Now if I could only bargain on the gas bill or the water bill my life would be complete.

What he witnesses destroys his faith not only in justice, but all he holds dear. What follows is an unthinkable abuse of power and a criminal conspiracy, as a breathtaking cover-up is set in motion by those appointed to work for one of the most important people in the world – the President of the United States.

In this stunning catalog, Wees, curator of decorative arts at the Clark Art Institute, shares her extensive knowledge of silver. Robert Sterling Clark, who established the Art Institute in 1955, preferred Huguenot silver? especially that of Paul de Lamerie? so his collection, which contains typical objects from the early 16th to the mid-20th centuries, is especially rich in 18th-century examples. Wees arranges this collection according to general function ("Dining," "Lighting," etc.) and prefaces each chapter with exhaustively footnoted essays. She accompanies each item with crisp black-and-white photographs, a wealth of description, and helpful commentary. Analogous to Kathryn Buhler's standard catalog of American silver in Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, this is a wonderful tool for researching makers and hallmarks, comparing stylistic elements, or just marveling at the beauty of an extraordinary collection. While not intended to be a historical compendium, this informative, visual feast belongs in all silver reference collections and will also certainly appeal to individual collectors. 19 colour & 1,222 b/w illustrations
