    A Key To Walker & Hall Date Letters

    We are pleased to announce that the long awaited work from Wichwood a fascinating guide to silver plated wares "A KEY TO THE DATE LETTERS TO BE FOUND ON WALKER & HALL SILVER PLATED WARES" is now available. Founded in 1845 Walker and Hall were one of the few companies to obligingly mark their wares with a dating system.

    Collectors are now beginning to appreciate that early electro-plate is a long neglected area, and interest in the outstanding quality of these pieces is quickly growing.

    Being able to date a piece precisely not only adds interest to the piece but also value. Covering the period from 1884-1959, these tables will enable you to do just this.

    This informative reference will prove invaluable for any professional or amateur with an interest in Walker & Hall silver plated wares.

    To order your copies please go to the Bookshop at www.wichwood.com.
