Description

Margo Grant Walsh is a prominent interior architect with an impeccable eye for collecting silver. The recipient of prestigious awards in her industry, she has devoted her career to designing interiors for major corporations, while amassing a remarkable collection of more than 800 exquisitely designed and beautifully crafted pieces of silver, from jewelry to tea services. This book is the first to document her unparalleled collection. Comprising works from seventeen countries, the collection features examples by internationally acclaimed artists and workshops, such as C. R. Ashbee, Christopher Dresser, Georg Jensen, the Kalo Shop, Omar Ramsden, William Spratling, and Tiffany & Company. Architect-designed silver is a recurring theme of the collection, which includes a tea service by the Japanese architectural team of Kazuo Sejima and Ryue Nishiwaza.
