"A Welcome Addition to Silver Collectors & Researchers" "My
company, prices4antiques.com, frequently receives requests from
authors wishing to use our photos in their publications. We are
happy to contribute in this way, but are seldom as impressed and
pleased with the final product as we are in the case of this silver
book. p4A editors conduct research everyday and see a myriad of
reference materials, few of which are as clean, well-organized and
complete as this one. This volume will not go on our library's
bookshelves, it will stay on our silver editor's desk where it can
be consulted daily." -- Kent Anderson "prices4antiques.com (Dayton,

A useful quick guide." -- Kerry Shrives "Antiques Roadshow Silver Appraiser"
