Brass and BrasswareCode:
David J.Eveleigh. A5, 32pp. The history of the rise of English brassmaking, together with the role of the specialist craftsmen – founders and braziers chiefly – who produced most finished brassware is described and illustrated here with many photographs of the wide range of uses applied to this metal, eg, kettles, candlesticks, door knockers, etc. It covers brassware of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, a well-established field for collectors and emphasises the importance of brass in the Victorian period, when brass was at its peak.
