About this title

Synopsis:

Book by Osterberg, Richard

From Library Journal:

The vast amount of silver removed from the Comstock Mine from 1859 to 1862, and again from 1873 to 1882, caused the price of silver flatware to fall in the United States. With the expanded demand by customers, manufacturers began to create a variety of unique and interesting forms and designs, many of which reflected the current vogue of art and history. Osterberg (The Silver Flatware Dictionary, A.S. Barnes, 1979) now offers an encyclopedia of sterling flatware for the collector. Though heavy on 19th-century pieces, this books offers examples as recent as 1975, along with price guides and inventory charts. The black-and-white photographs best show pattern relief and richly illustrate a work that will be welcome in any antiques reference collection.
