Description: Although precious metals have been part of the lives of New Yorkers since the city's founding, until now comparatively little has been written about them. These two volumes examine the precious metals trades and usage of precious metals artifacts since the third quarter of the 17th century, through the excellent collection at the Museum of the City of New York that contains more than 1400 objects of silver and other precious metals, including hollowware, flatware, and jewelry made, sold, or owned in New York.

The history of these artifacts and their makers is told through essays and catalog entries, as well as in biographies of craftsmen, designers, and retail firms. Entries include photographs of the objects and their marks, with measurements, description, references, accession information, and history. The featured essays are "Taste, Trade, and Industry: Making and Marketing New York Silver", "Life as a Silversmith in New York City before 1750", and "Gratitude and Glory: Silver and Gold Presentation Pieces in New York City History".
