Description

Antiques: Traditional Techniques of the Master Craftsmen furniture, glass, ceramics, gold, silver and much more. Edited by Elizabeth Drury. Look at any decorative object at home or in a museum and ask yourself how it was made. Did the traditional techniques change or were the same processes carried on for centuries? Some of the crafts have been practised for thousands of years, their origins- as in the case of mosaic glass manufacture - date from Antiquity. Others such as silver plate developed through the discovery and invention of new techniques. All required a degree of knowledge and expertise. Most important of all is the definition of a craft as a skilled trade involving the making by hand of individual, and sometimes unique, objects. A VERY LARGE BOOK THAT WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL FREIGHT.
