No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This book is the first major study of the virtuoso chasers who decorated London gold boxes and watchcases in the eighteenth century. Offering a biographical dictionary of the chasers, this volume is a major contribution to the study of English goldsmiths' work and of horology, and is likely to become a standard work in the field.
