I haven't seen it yet, but have ordered a copy to take a look.

All About Antique Silver with International Hallmarks
by Diana Sanders Cinamon

Publisher's press release:

From Renaissance to Art Deco - 'All About Antique Silver with International Hallmarks' Book Released

San Bernardino, CA, United States, 09/24/2006 - "All About Antique Silver with International Hallmarks" gives the reader all of sorts clues for dating hollowware and flatware along with international hallmarks for 24 countries.

The book provides early American patent diagrams and 19th century catalog engravings to help in the identification process.

Two chapters are devoted to construction techniques of early flatware and hollowware for silver and silver substitutes such as Sheffield plate, silverplate, and mercury plating.

The book also features silver hallmarks for 24 countries including England, France, Germany, Italy and many more. Silver marks can be confusing. This book simplifies the process of identifying marks from various countries by using concise descriptions, charts and historical timelines. The marks are accurate and up-to-date.

The chapter on silver styles features examples from Renaissance to Art Deco with pictures of many types of decorative art and architecture.

The appendix includes the British Design Registry System, United States Utility and Design Patent Numbers, a table of metric conversions and a section on the new Vienna Hallmarking convention marks. We have even included a section with English and French rulers.

You will want to carry this book around with you as a quick reference guide. With 268 pages, you are sure to find the information you want. This book is generously illustrated with 146 pictures, most in color, in addition to the silver hallmarks.

Apparently so --from their website:
