Thanks to the unique hallmarking system, it is possible to tell when, where, by whom, and with what quality of metal most pieces of silver and Sheffield plate were made. This compact, pocket-sized guide from Miller’s shows how to decipher this system, and to read the history behind the marks. A full introduction explains how to understand the marks and distinguish between silver, plate, and electroplate, followed by a look at all the marks of the major British, Irish, and American assay guilds. The pages are packed with lists of key manufacturers, designers, and patterns, and are supported by detailed glossaries. Full color photographs throughout of sample silverware and marks help to date and authenticate pieces.
