About This Item

The McBride Company, NY, 1957. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Good. Marion B. Wilson. "Pewterware has long been one of the most popular items with collectors but, surprisingly, there have been few books on the subject. The present volume lists alphabetically all known pewterers, including the names of hundreds of newly discovered craftsmen, with their place of work, working dates, rarity, and surviving forms made by each. Every known touchmark is pictured under the name of the pewterer, with an indication of chronological usage and comparative scarcity. The three-hundred-odd touchmarks are illustrated in line drawings to scale by Marion B. Wilson, and numerous other drawings show the evolution of various important pewter forms - teapots, coffee pots, and porringers - with their regional usage and variations. Many photographs illustrate outstanding examples of American pewter..." [Dust Jacket] A definitive guide to American pewterware and markings. 300 illustrations. The dust jacket has chipping at the top and bottom of the spine and wear to the other extremities of the jacket. Scarce. 1ST EDITION.
