Silver in the Golden State


Edited by Edgar W. Morse and Thomas Curran, this volume produced by the Oakland Museum History Department, offers a fascinating and detailed look at the history of that other precious metal in California. Chapters cover Arts and Crafts Silversmiths, the Comstock and California Silver, Silver and the California Experience, and X-Ray Fluorescence of California Silverware, among others. Profusely illustrated with gorgeous photos and historic drawings and illustrations, this is a beautiful tribute to the role of Silver in California's history. Long out of print, this book is somewhat hard to find, and we only have a limited number available. Hardbound w/dustjacket: 119 pages: 8.75 x 11.25"
