About Modern Swedish Silver:
From the publisher: "Mr. Sigurd Persson belongs to the younger generation of Swedish silversmiths. Personally, he prefers calling himself a worker in precious metals and jewels. Through his exquisite, art-craft creations and audacious and even temperamental articles in the trade journal, he has made himself known and respected. His works are internationally well-known, having figured prominently in various exhibitions in various countries.

Modern Swedish Silver opens with a review of what has been achieved in the past, but, thereafter, completely concerns itself with modern developementswithin the realm of art-craft in proof metal. All the known silversmiths will be found here: from Erik Fleming and Wiven Nilsson, who gave new impulses to silversmithry in Sweden and down to the very youngest but also very promising artisans."
