Long considered one of the most authoritative and useful books on the subject. Not only does the book survey the history and the development of these historic products, from functional buttons and spoons to the more sophisticated candlesticks, tankards, coffee- and teapots, but more importantly it describes and illustrates, step-by-step, how these products were made.
Many excellent photographs of the objects described are also included. The book will be of great interest to collectors, artisans, and students of the subject.
