Large hardcover in As New condition with As New dustwrapper. First edition, pp xiii, 306, colour illustrations, appendices, glossary, notes, bibliography, index. After a lifetime of study, Peter Spencer Davies has now produced what will be the definitive guide to the subject. Drawing upon the extensive archival material that has survived, the book traces the history of the craft of the pewterers from its origins in the early years of the sixteenth century, and shows how they came to dominate the craft guilds for much of the next three hundred years. The evolution of pewter wares and the regional differences in style across the country is described, and the influence of Scotland's overseas trading partners explained. The book is lavishly illustrated with examples of every known type of pewter ware, together with the names, dates and marks of the pewterers in each of the burghs where pewter was made.
