‘All About Antique Silver with International Hallmarks’ receives an outstanding recommendation from Kerry Shrives, Antiques Roadshow silver appraiser, and Vice-President of Skinner’s auction house in Boston

. July 7, 2008

San Bernardino, CA – With literally thousands of books available about antique silver collecting, it’s good to have the recommendation of a professional.

Although this book has received recommendations from ‘Silver Magazine’ and three major appraising organizations, the most recent comments from TV silver appraiser, Kerry Shrives, may well be the most important endorsement a first-time author can receive.

Ms. Shrives notes that this book is a ‘Solid Resource for Experienced and Beginner Collectors Alike. Clear and well-formatted, ‘All About Antique Silver’ provides
a good reference source for International silver marks, including the more modern marks lacking from standards such as ‘The Book of Old Silver’ or ‘English * American * Foreign and International Hallmarks on Silver Collected by Tardy’. A useful, quick guide.’

This book gives the reader step-by-step information for dating coffee pots, teapots, creamers, wine coasters, other types of hollowware, flatware and includes up-to-date hallmarks for 24 countries!

With 268 pages, you are sure to find the information you want. This book is generously illustrated with 146 pictures, most in color, in addition to the silver hallmarks.

Available from most online booksellers, this book retails for $39.95. Autographed copies may be purchased from the publisher at aaa-publishing.com or toll free at 866-909-5222.
