About this title:

Synopsis: Greek gold jewelry from the Classical period. Presented by The State Hermitage in St Petersburg, extravagant pieces specially made for the wealthy peoples of the Crimea and excavated from the huge burial mounds of that region, while the b British Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York offer material not only from the cities of ancient Greece, but also from the rich Greek colonies in Southern Italy, the Greek cities if Asia Minor, Cyprus and the rest of the eastern Mediterranean.

From Booklist: Three world-class museums--the British Museum, New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, and St. Petersburg's State Hermitage--have opened their coffers to showcase close to 200 pieces of ancient jewelry. Samples have been plucked not only from Greece but also from what is now known as Egypt, Cyprus, Sicily, and southern Italy. The authors' scholarship is unobtrusive; in fact, the text provides relatively easy reading for those charmed by objets d'art as well as curators and professional jewelers. Each item is well researched; included are its provenance, approximate date of manufacture, dimensions, a lengthy description, current and original owners, and a bibliography. The color photography is exquisite, resulting in details so fine that readers sense they could almost touch the precious metals. Barbara Jacobs
