If you are doing research on William Spratling and his Mexican silver jewelry and tableware, read Spratling Silver: A Field Guide by Phyllis M. Goddard (Keenan Tyler Paine, Altadena, CA;, $39.95, c2003, paperback, 152 pages). More than 400 color photographs of silver and marks help explain the designs and quality of the Spratling workshop. Cigarette holders, bowls, pitchers, letter openers, knives, forks, spoons, and even chairs are included, and so are tips on spotting copies and fakes. You will also find care tips, a bibliography, and a list of other sources of information.
