Arthur J. Stone (1847-1938), one of the last independent silversmiths to make silver by hand, was a major promoter of the Arts and Crafts tenets of beautiful but functional design. His influential work as a designer and craftsman set the standard for a generation of apprentices who were trained in hand-working techniques at his highly respected workshop in Gardner, Massachusetts. This handsome publication, the first major retrospective of the artist's designs and silver production, documents Stone's life and work. 212 objects are described and illustrated, 32 in color. 71 figures accompany the text and 23 figures illustrate marks found on stone silver.
