Here are the details scanned from the book

This is the first serious study ever made of the 18th-century English footed salver or tazza.

In Part I,
Professor Kelsall brings together and discusses all the available contemporary evidence regarding their use.

In Part II,
Photographs and detailed descriptions of some two hundred different salvers and related sweetmeat glasses are provided, classified according to their features and the period when they were made.

Three-quarters of these cases have never before been seen in print, as they are from the author’s own collection, where during forty years or so the largest and most representative assembly of this type of glass has been systematically put together and studied.

Even a casual glance at the illustrations will show how immensely varied, how interesting and how attractive these neglected examples of the Golden Age of English glass making actually are.

It is the aim of the present book to help towards developing an awareness of the interest and importance of this small but hitherto largely unexplored part of our national glass heritage.
