Compendium of Scottish Silver Volume 2

Other Titles


The Compendium of Scottish Silver is a comparatively comprehensive catalog of antique, as well as some modern, Scottish silver and gold made between 1320ca and 2004 that has appeared in public and private collections, auction sales and antique shops during the past 50-100 years. It represents an attempt to provide a representative view of Scottish silver production over the centuries as reflected in extant examples. Additionally, the catalog is useful in evaluating the relative rarity of various forms (e.g. Scottish cake baskets or dish crosses) as well as the primary craftsmen producing specific forms (e.g. egg-shaped teapots, dolphin-handled creamboats). The catalog contains over 5,100 listings arranged alphabetically by item (e.g. bowls, candlesticks, flatware, etc.) and presented among items, chronologically. Volume 2 is a continuation from Volume 1. This volume contains the second half of the alphabetical listings from Miscellaneous-Wine as well as a Guide, a Listing of First Appearances and a Glossary of the terms use in describing the silver as well as its production and decoration. Photographic examples for most categories are also included before each set of listings. The book should be a helpful resource for collectors, museums, antique dealers, auction houses, as well as historians, genealogists and other researchers.
