9780819568489: Early Connecticut Silver, 1700–1840 (Garnet Books)

Early Connecticut Silver is a catalog of the most significant pieces of silver hollowware made by Connecticut silversmiths between the years 1700 and 1840, as well as representative flatware and other pieces such as swords and Masonic jewels. In all, it constitutes an exhibit that could never be mounted in a single museum, and one that proves the authors’ conviction that Connecticut silver is distinctive and worthy of comparison to the more sophisticated contemporary styles associated with the silversmiths of Boston and New York City. Wesleyan is proud to offer a new edition of this essential work, featuring an introduction by Erin Eisenbarth that brings the coverage up to date, incorporating the research done on this subject since the original publication. The book still includes an introductory essay that defines “the Connecticut school,” and an annotated index of silversmiths known to have worked in Connecticut and an index of the marks used by them.

Review:

“It is highly improbable that any subsequent work on the subject could surpass this book... Bohan and Hammerslough have covered the subject with unprecedented thoroughness.”—Choice
