The Harts silversmiths workshop in Chipping Campden is the sole survivor of C.R. Ashbee's Arts and Crafts Guild of Handicraft. This book by Richard Russell is a celebration of over a century of silverware as well as a glimpse into the future. The story encompasses the move to Chipping Campden with C.R. Ashbee, the heydey of the Guild of Handicraft, the continuing dominance of George Hart through two world wars, and the successful handover to the second, third and fourth generations of the Hart family.
With plenty of detailed history of the family and the business, the book will appeal to anyone who would like an insight into the creation of silverware with a worldwide reputation.
