Item description for Country House Silver: from Dunham Massey by James Lomax...

Dunham Massey, near Altrincham in Cheshire, is home to one of the most outstanding collections of silver in Britain. Largely collected by the 2nd Earl of Warrington, the silver collection is remarkable in terms of scale and quality of craftsmanship and decoration.This handsome volume constitutes a comprehensive catalogue of this extraordinary collection which contains over one thousand individual objects, many of which date from the period regarded as the Great Age of Country House Silver, 1680--1750. Specially commissioned photography and detailed catalogue entries provide information about the specification, manufacture, provenance and significance of the various pieces. Illustrated essays provide valuable background on the life of Lord Warrington at Dunham Massey, and a series of appendices include a transcript of the celebrated 1750 inventory, as well as information about other relevant collections of plate and the Huguenot goldsmiths who produced these superb works.
