"Part history, part art-history, part guide to the silver, this book offers the first in-depth study of one of the most overlooked fields of nineteenth century silverwork. Wynyard Wilkinson surveys each region of India separately, and he discusses the complex styles and influences which combined to produce the distinctive forms and decoration on Indian Silver between 1858 and 1947 ... For the first time, the subject receives careful scrutiny and emerges with a vividness and clarity that will command the attention of both the collector and student" (front jacket flap).
