The history of American silver offers invaluable insights into the economic and cultural history of the nation itself. Published here for the first time, the Art Institute of Chicago's superb collection embodies innovation and beauty from the colonial era to the present. In the 17th century, silversmiths brought the fashions of their homelands to the colonies, and in the early 18th, new forms arose as technology diversified production. Demand increased in the 19th century as the Industrial Revolution took hold. In the 20th, modernism changed the shape of silver inside and outside the home. This beautifully illustrated volume presents highlights from the collection with stunning photography and entries from leading specialists. In-depth essays relate a fascinating story about eating, drinking, and entertaining that spans the history of the Republic and trace the development of the Art Institute's holdings of American silver over nearly a century.

"The first publication of the museum's full collection of American silver, which ranks with the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the MFA Boston and ranges from colonial-era tableware to ecclesiastical and presentation silver, to jewelry by renowned contemporary artists. This publication will provide a look at the evolution of designs in silver as well as the early history of Philadelphia--a center of silver production from its earliest days--as seen through the intersecting lives of its artisans and patrons. The catalogue section includes extensive biographies of makers and retailers, based on decades of archival research, along with detailed object entries, including deeply researched information on the original owners and the donors. The photography captures not only full views of the objects but also details, marks, and heraldic engraving. The first of four volumes, the 2018 publication will cover makers and retailers whose names begin with the letters A to F. The Museum's complete American silver collection has not previously been published. The catalogue will combine generous illustrations similar to those in the MFA Boston's Silver of the Americas, 1600-2000 (2008), with the biographical detail of Patricia Kane's Colonial Massachusetts Silversmiths and Jewelers (Yale, 1998)"--

"This beautifully illustrated catalogue explores how Georg Jensen silver has expanded the boundaries of modern style, changing the look of twentieth-century homes and spreading Scandinavian design around the world. Design for Everyday Living is the first scholarly treatment of Georg Jensen to approach the firm's output in an analytical way, situating it in the context of twentieth-century design history and focusing on the firm's unique evolution and global influence. This book is geared to a wide audience of interested nonspecialists and design historians rather than to a narrower readership of silver collectors. It is also innovative in that it focuses on the story of the firm rather than solely on the career of its founder. The essays are all original and include a contribution from Thomas Thulstrup, the leading expert on Georg Jensen silver. The book also benefits from a close collaboration with the Jensen firm, which has allowed us access to images and archival materials published here for the first time"--

Almost everybody who has grown up in Chicago knows about the Thorne Rooms. Housed in the Children’s Galleries of the Chicago Art Institute, they are a collection of 68 exquisitely crafted miniature rooms made in the 1930s by Mrs. James Ward Thorne. Each of the 68 rooms is designed in the style of a different historic period, and every detail is perfect, from the knobs on the doors to the candles in the candlesticks. Some might even say, the rooms are magic. Imagine—what if you discovered a key that allowed you to shrink so that you were small enough to sneak inside and explore the rooms’ secrets? What if you discovered that others had done so before you? And that someone had left something important behind? Fans of Chasing Vermeer, The Doll People, and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler will be swept up in the magic of this exciting art adventure! From the Hardcover edition.
