"The key-note of the fascination of pewter at its best is its simplicity. It does not, like gold and silver plate, hint in any way at large intrinsic values, nor has it their aggressive sparkle and glitter clamouring decoratively for attention." First published in 1913, Malcolm Bell's guide is a clear, concise and fascinating introduction to the world of antique pewter. Reflecting the changing aesthetic values of the 20th century, he praises the understated design and solid craftsmanship of everyday objects crafted using pewter alloy between the 15th and 17th centuries. He starts with a guide to the composition and manufacture of pewter, before surveying the history of its use and design in both domestic and ecclesiastical settings and offering useful advice for collectors.
