Description
Celebrating the stunning beauty of English silver crafted over three centuries, this overview of the Gans Collection—one of the leading silver collections in the United States—offers unique insight into the developments that took place in eating and drinking habits in Stuart, Hanoverian, and Victorian England. Drawing on colorful details from menus, cookbooks, and anecdotes about the owners of these tablewares, the author of The Huguenot Legacy discusses how the silver reflects burgeoning prosperity in Restoration London and global expansion of the British Empire in the 18th and 19th centuries. All of the works appear in color photographs, alongside information on their heraldry, distinguishing features, and their often-intriguing provenances.
