This is a fully illustrated catalogue, by two of Ireland’s foremost specialists in Irish silver, of the permanent exhibition of some 500 pieces of Irish silver, dating from c. 1500 to the present day, on display in the Museum of Decorative Arts and History, Collins Barracks. As such, it will be the definitive work on the national collection of late medieval to modern silver. In addition to a catalogue of all the objects on display, the text deals with such topics as the organisation and control of the goldsmith’s craft and silversmithing techniques, as well as providing tables of Dublin hallmarks and a full catalogue of Irish makers’ marks.
