The Gilberts' earliest acquisitions of silver in the late 1960s were made with essentially decorative purposes in mind. By about 1970, however, the Gilberts had begun to develop a serious interest in the craftsmanship of the finest goldsmith's work. Typical of their first purchases are the replica of the Warwick Vase, a pair of entree dishes from the Norfolk Service, and the magnificent candelabrum centerpiece, all by the English goldsmith Paul Storr (1771 - 1844). These and other early acquisitions established the criteria that guided the formation of the collection through the state documents by William Ezelle Jones 1977 catalogue, the works being generally of outstanding quality and possessing, in Arthur Gilbert's express, a monumentality that reflected the grandeur of the style of life for which they were made. That this has continued to be a major element in the collection is illustrated by certain subsequent acquisitions, such as the astonishing Russian gates, the Lafayette vase, and the Indian howdah.

Descrizione libro Los Angeles County Museum, 1988. Hardcover. Condizione: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. First Edition. New copy. Philanthropists Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert passionately amassed what was probably the finest private collection of goldsmiths' work in the world. Early on they concentrated on Georgian silver-in particular 18th- and early 19th-century works by English masters Paul de Lamerie and Paul Storr-and later broadened the collection to survey English and Continental goldsmith's work from the Renaissance to the Victorian era. This 1988 volume is from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where pieces from the Gilbert Collection were displayed before Arthur donated them to his native Britain. It catalogs 175 exquisite items, from a very rare Tudor silver-gilt casting bottle, with tiny dragons holding its chain handle, to an enormous cup with scenes and figures commemorating the life of Lafayette, presented to his son George Washington Lafayette after his father's death. Here too are a collection of elegant German tankards; a cup carved from a coconut to look like a somewhat pudgy hawk, with jewels and silver wings; and a 17th-century wager cup shaped like a maiden, which was later fitted with a clockwork mechanism under her skirt so she could roll along the table. Many are seen in color plates; all are shown in a large main view with smaller detail views of noteworthy features and the smith's marks, and their provenance and construction are thoroughly described. Retail price is $125.00. New copy in original new slipcase. Textured end papers. Illustrated. 688pp., index. Full refund if not satisfied. Codice articolo 036835
