Making servingware books


#1

Greetings, all.

I have a couple of questions for the group.

[Edit] Message split [/Edit]

And speaking of things I didn’t know existed. I stumbled onto some
odd serving pieces (something called a pickle castor for one, which
I’d never seen before) whilst looking for apothecary jars on eBay,
which got me thinking. There’s all kinds of different serving pieces,
both hollowware & flatware. Are there any books or manuals that
discuss how to make them? I know there’s a flatware manual but I
don’t remember what it was called-- a visiting artist mentioned it in
passing. I’m also not sure if it would still be in print, though. All
I’m finding on Amazon & B&N are price guides for antique dealers &
collectors, which isn’t really what I’m looking for.

Any ideas for either?
