Glanville discusses the chronology of English silver, with chapters on Medieval, Tudor, Stuart, Early Georgian, Mid-Georgian to Regency, and from Victoria to the present. She also details the organisation of the silversmith's craft, with information on touch, assay and hallmarking, and the techniques used. The design sources of the engraver, such as heraldry, are discussed, along with the creative role that foreigners played. The author closes with the evolution of the silver collection, highlighting the interesting and inevitable fakes and forgeries that have occurred.
