Military & Naval Silver by Roger Perkins – Good Clean 2nd hand book
This book seeks to demonstrate that the silver owned by the armed forces is much more than beautifully crafted metalwork. This is silver with a human face. By virtue of the wording engraved upon it, each piece has a story to tell. Its provenance and history is there to be read or interpreted. The opening chapters describe the ways in which military and naval silver has been conceived and created since the late 18th century, the work of some of the famous silversmiths involved, and the distinctive styles of design which they have employed.
