Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0971120242, Paperback)

In this, his fifth book, Bille Hougart continues in the tradition of the 2011 publication, "The Little Book of Marks on Southwestern Silver." The new book (7" x 10") is compact and portable, and lists 225 new silversmith entries, for a total of 3,425 individual entries for silversmiths, designers, guilds, trading posts and other retail shops. There are over 4,000 photographs or hand-drawn images of marks, including over 500 new images of marks. It features the marks of past masters such as Kenneth Begay, Charles Loloma, Preston Monongye, Joe H. Quintana, Ambrose Roanhorse and those of numerous contemporary artists...and, some old mysteries have been solved! The entries cover all Southwest tribes, but also include many non-Native Americans working in the "Southwestern style." In addition to the main section on hallmarks, there are discussions of the Indian Arts and Crafts Board, the United Indian Traders Association, Native American silver guilds in the Southwest, and an overview of the history of marks on Southwestern Native American silver. There is a separate section on Native American silversmith symbols. The book is comprehensive and user-friendly --- fully cross-referenced and indexed for rapid and efficient searching. This book is a must have for collectors, dealers, appraisers and fans of Southwestern sterling silver jewelry and silver crafts.
