East Anglian Silver, 1550-1750
John Adamson, 2004 - Antiques & Collectibles - 128 pages
The craftsmanship of silver made in East Anglia have long been celebrated by scholars and collectors. This book describes in depth a wealth of important silver articles made in the region which are now to be found in museums and private collections in Britain, America and Australia, as well as in churches in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. Many of the objects featured have never been published before, including a beaker in the Royal Collection by Elizabeth Haslewood, Norwich's only woman silversmith of the Stuart period, and a magnificent Charles II tankard from the Gregory Peck collection.
The essays, the results of new research on many aspects of the economic and social history of the region, set the silver in its historical context. They present a perspective on everyday life for many East Anglians during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
