This work is an exhibition catalogue for an exhibition of silver marked by Paul de Lamerie. Accompanying a touring exhibition organized by the Brooks Museum, Memphis, and opening at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London in November 2006, this highly illustrated catalogue showcases highlights from Paul Cahn's collection of magnificent silver bearing the mark of the illustrious Huguenot silversmith, Paul de Lamerie. Other pieces marked by de Lamerie's contemporaries are also featured to show the broader context of his work and to give us a deeper understanding of the London trade at the time. The author provides us with new insights into de Lamerie's remarkable success and influence within the London scene.
