About This Item

Ellenor M. Alcorn

Established in the 1930s, the MFA's collection of English silver has now grown to more than 500 objects. Volume 1 covers 142 pieces of pre-Britannia plate, many of them published for the first time. The second volume contains 283 entries, representing the entire holdings of the MFA from the late 17th to early 20th century. Each object is described in detail, and each entry includes duotone photographs of all marks and armorials, as well as complete listings of provenance, exhibition, and publication history. From cups to caddy spoons and from plates to pitchers, this is the only comprehensive guide in print to one of the world's most notable and celebrated silver collections.
