From the cover: “This book aims not merely to provide a fuller historical background for the connoisseur and collector, but to bring pewter to the attention of the historian, and to place it in its rightful context in the economic and social history of Britain. This study, based on extensive research, places emphasis, not only upon the pewter industry and its gilds, but upon the distribution and consumption of pewter, and on the role it enjoyed in the household where its use was influenced by changes in diet as well as changes in the intricate rituals and etiquette which surrounded the meals of our forefathers.”
