Description
The Clark Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, holds one of the largest and finest collections of British silver outside of England, including many masterpieces. It was begun in the 1910s by Singer sewing machine heir Robert Sterling Clark, who bought both luxury items by prominent makers and domestic wares, many of which had been owned by the most celebrated patrons of the 18th and 19th centuries. This substantive volume, with more than 1200 duotone illustrations and 19 color plates, catalogs every object in the collection, including 76 pieces by Paul de Lamerie and many more by other great Huguenot silversmiths. Detailed entries about some 850 objects provide marks, inscriptions, heraldry, construction notes, comments, provenance, and exhibition and publication history.
