Product Description:

This pocket-sized guide to identifying and interpreting metal and ceramic marks has been improved with the addition of the most recent hallmarks, along with details of the new hallmarking system.

Review:

‘As a pocket reference on ‘marks’ this is by far the best I have seen. It covers ALL marks, unlike most which cover either metal or porcelain’.
