Silver of the Americas, 1600-2000

American Silver in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Volume 3

Edited by Gerald W.R. Ward and Jeannine Falino. Text by Gerald W.R. Ward, Jeannine Falino, Jane Port, Rebecca Ann Gay Reynolds.

At more than 500 pages, and featuring 1000 detailed reproductions, this handsome, extensive collection catalogue complements and updates Kathryn C. Buhler's landmark 1972 opus, American Silver, 1655-1825. It includes all of the American silver in the Museum of Fine Art's esteemed collection, including many previously unpublished works acquired between 1972 and 2004. Also featured are a number of works created after 1825 that did not appear in the Buhler catalogue--such as a Tiffany pitcher from the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, the very first piece of American silver acquired by the museum. Silver of the Americas presents a chronological sweep from the seventeenth century to the present, with chapters on the Colonial era, the Federal period, the Revival styles of the nineteenth century, the aesthetic movement, the Arts and Crafts period, and twentieth-century Modernism, as well as a chapter on silver from Mexico and South America and another devoted to church silver. This major new reference work details nearly 700 objects in over 400 entries, providing lengthy discussions of the objects, as well as notes on their maker, use, history, and technique. Comprehensive and authoritative, this is the definitive guide to one of the world's most renowned collections of American silver.
