Miller's Encyclopedia of World Silver Marks

By Judith Miller, Duncan Campbell
Authors:
Judith Miller, Duncan Campbell
Designed as the essential reference tool for appraisers, collectors and dealers of silverware, the Encyclopedia is an indispensable guide for anyone researching silver hallmarks, offering clear and wide-ranging reproductions of thousands of hallmarks from more than 60 countries and regions, past and present, on every continent. It is also clearly and logically organized into two volumes for ease of reference: in the first volume are hallmarks listed by visual type and category, fully cross-referenced to information in the second volume on country of origin (in order of importance), centre of assaying or making, date and silver standard marks, special marks such as import/export marks, and selected maker's marks. Vetted by an international team of experts, the Encyclopedia thus helps you to identify silver hallmarks quickly, easily and reliably. It also includes brief historical overviews of hallmarking in each country, a description of the hallmarking process, and a guide to identifying fake and forged marks. Practical, comprehensive and up to date, Miller's Encyclopedia of World Silver Marks is an invaluable aid to identifying silverware from around the world.

    Miller's Costume Jewellery

    By Judith Miller
    Authors:
    Judith Miller
    Chanel, Dior, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Coro, Miriam Haskell, Stanley Hagler ...the greats of 20th century costume jewellery trip off the tongue like a parade of the best in fashion. Costume - or non-precious - jewellery has been worn since ancient times. In a comprehensive introduction, Judith Miller discusses how these early pieces influenced the development of costume jewellery in the 20th century: from the Great Depression, when many could only afford glass stones, to the fantasy pastes of the 1950s which bore no resemblance to precious gems. Biographies of the great designers and companies (Chanel, Dior, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Coro and more) will be joined by information on lesser-known names and unsigned pieces. Special features will explore subjects such as Art Deco jewelry, costume jewellery in Hollywood films and unsigned pieces. It will look at the lives of the designers, their inspirations as well as showing hundreds of beautiful designs and the marks to look for.
