The catalog of antique and modern Scottish gold and silver provides comparative descriptions of more than 6,000 pieces with information originating from museums, antique shops, trade publications and private collections. Photos of Scottish silver introduce each section of chronological listings.

Compendium of Scottish Silver II is the most comprehensive catalog of Scottish silver and gold published to date and is an essential reference for readers of art, antiques and history. More than 6,000 descriptions of pieces from the 14th-21st centuries are organized chronologically by category (e.g. bowls, mugs, flatware, teapots, etc.) with 54 photos introducing categories. A timeline aids readers in dating pieces and evaluating rarity, and a glossary defines decorative arts terms. Expanded from the original Compendium, a Cornell University Digital Library project, Compendium II has more than 1,000 new listings of provincial, 19th century and special collections silver. Additionally, there is a guide to interpreting Scottish hallmarks and evaluating Scottish silver designed to help the reader avoid common pitfalls.
