Abstract: The Compendium of Scottish Silver is a comparatively comprehensive catalog of antique as well as some modern Scottish silver and gold made between 1320ca and 2004 that has appeared in public and private collections, auction sales and antique shops during the past 50-100 years. It represents an attempt to provide a representative view of Scottish silver production over the centuries as reflected in extant examples. Additionally, the catalog is useful in evaluating the relative rarity of various forms (e.g. Scottish cake baskets or dish crosses) as well as the primary craftsmen producing specific forms (e.g. egg-shaped teapots, dolphin-handled creamboats). The catalog contains over 5,100 listings arranged alphabetically by item (e.g. bowls, candlesticks, flatware, etc.) and presented among items, chronologically. Volume 1 contains the alphabetical listings from Baskets-Ink Pots as well as a Guide, a Listing of First Appearances and a Glossary of the terms use in describing the silver as well as its production and decoration. Photographic examples for most categories are also included before each set of listings. Note that Volume 2 is a continuation of the alphabetical categories beginning with "M". The book should be a helpful resource for collectors, museums, antique dealers, auction houses, as well as historians, genealogists and other researchers.
