    Somewhat Disappointing…….., July 27, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Warman’s Sterling Silver Flatware: Value & Identification Guide (Paperback)

    As an avid collector of sterling silver flatware I am grateful for any new publication relating to pattern identification. Unfortunately, this guide is somewhat disappointing. The pattern illustrations and photographs range in quality from fairly good to down right poor. There is no section on hallmarks, an essential element in the identification of flatware patterns. Warman’s guide is primarily a price list. As Moran correctly points out in his introductory remarks, merely a “ballpark” valuation. Nevertheless, while not a definative work, one should consider adding this guide to their sterling flatware reference library.

    I wish I had read the above review before I spent my money on this book. I think if someone is going to sell an identification “guide” for a specific category of goods and they are only going to cover a representative selection of that category, they should at least be honest about it on the cover. The cover of this one should say “If you only need a few photos from each manufacturer and you don’t need makers’ marks to help you IDENTIFY your silver, then this book is for you!!!”

    This review is from: Warman’s Sterling Silver Flatware: Value & Identification Guide (Paperback)

    This book is a very useful resource if you deal in sterling silver flatware as it provides actual photographs, not drawings of the handles of each patter. The other benefit this book provides is that you can identify the pieces based on size — and accurately call a piece by the proper name. Each pattern has a list of many available pieces and their value. I use this book alot and bought one for by business partner — anyone who deals in sterling flatware should have a copy!
