The products of the colonial period are well known, but there is little authoritative research on the actual techniques of the silversmith. Henry J. Kauffman fills the gap with this study. He describes the tools and the methods used by these colonial artisans in fashioning the wide variety of silver objects that today are so highly prized. Photographs of the finished products, together with detailed illustrations of the step-by-step fabrication of individual objects, supplement the text.
