Synopsis: Antique silver objects made for specific uses often reside in curio cabinets but are little understood today. In the late 19th century, many unusual novelties were created for various purposes. In this new book, two experts of silver explain why and how they were used. Here are calling card receivers, cane handles, tussie mussies, perfumers, dresser sets, curling tongs, glove stretchers, ring trees, lorgnettes, skirt lifters...flasks, cigar cutters, mustache combs, watch stands...bodkins, sewing birds, hem gauges, needle cases, pin holders, spool knaves, thimbles...memo books, page turners, stamp boxes, bookmarks, paperweights, pen wipers, pounce pots...baby rattles, tongue cleaners, ear picks, medicine spoons...egg cups, muffineers, casters, and more. Now you can identify your curios and gain understanding of their uses.
