Secular Goldsmiths' Work in Medieval France: A History.

Lightbown, Ronald W.

Hardback. 136p, 78 b/w pls, 2 col pls (Society of Antiquaries of London 1978). 

The few examples of Medieval French secular gold and silver that survive today are widely scattered. Ronald Lightbown here gathers together these important pieces in order to reaffirm their place in art history. The study examines the organisation of secular goldsmiths working in France, based on the few surviving records, before considering the types of plate that were made, their design and motifs, their distribution and the types of enamelled decoration. Lightbown also discusses the place of goldsmiths among other craftsmen and designers and their activities at court.
