Description

Spoons have been made ever since man discovered that handling liquids was vital to his existence. This book traces and illustrates the history of English spoons, and gives collectors some guidelines to follow. In this second edition the author has expanded the section on the British Arts and Crafts Movement, examining its contribution to European design at the turn of the nineteenth century, and showing how this influence was revisited on British design in the following decades.show more

About Simon Moore
