Description of this Book

Beginning with Cesar Ghiselin in 1681, Philadelphia has a long and storied history of silversmithing that includes notable artists such as Joseph Richardson Sr. and Jr., Philip Syng Jr., and Olaf Skoogfors. Celebrating this legacy and showcasing the Philadelphia Museum of Art's extraordinary and comprehensive collection of American silver, this generously illustrated book features a broad array of objects that range from colonial-era tableware to groundbreaking contemporary designs. Extensive biographies of makers accompany detailed entries on individual pieces that are full of new discoveries related to artist marks, heraldic engravings, and provenance histories. This volume is the first of four-organized alphabetically by makers and retailers-that will eventually encompass the museum's complete collection of American silver.
