This gorgeous book spotlights the art of the goldsmith through history. Starting with the opulent gilded tombs and grave goods of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs—including solid gold chairs, inlaid necklaces, and amulets, hundreds of remarkable photographs and the insightful text of this volume present spectacular examples of the goldsmith’s art through several millennia. Organized chronologically, the book goes on to trace precious works from subsequent epochs, unveiling the masterpieces that epitomize the craftsmanship of each, as well as presenting a fascinating documentation of the beliefs, values, and societal structure of each civilization. From the jewels of the Etruscan aristocracy to the vases and cameos from the de Medici family estate, golden treasures of faith and art in St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome, the treasures of the English royalty, and the maharaja’s jewels, the splendors.
