Period Design and Flatware Identification

As a Downton Abbey fan, I enjoyed an additional program on the manners of Downton which included identifying the various pieces of silver.

I have a small book published in 1947 titled "The Story of Sterling" which had a two page spread identifying various items in flat silver as well as a brief look at period designs. I thought it would be fun to share here for those that have an interest.

If you click on each image and zoom in you will be able to read and save it for your own reference.
This identifies the time frames and design elements of various periods.
