A small, yet exceptional collection of Tudor and Stuart silver, that includes an early apostle spoon, a tankard engraved with arms of Archbishop Frewin and two of the so-called ‘Armada’ dishes, forms the focus of this richly illustrated introduction to English silver of the period. Chapters on banqueting plate, the place of silver in aristocratic households, church plate and the silver trade are followed by a detailed catalogue of the 25 pieces in the David Little collection.
