I have been contacted by a very knowledgeable English silver collector who has inherited "a pair of Goblets (or chalices) , engraved, part gilt washed, with the *revere* mark on the base".

He is wondering who is the current best authority on Revere*s works that could "advise that the Goblets are genuine?"

What do you suggest?

Winterthur enjoys a desirable reputation. Would he be able to ship the items for inspection and testing?

David R. Brigham has a large article on Paul Revere silver in The Magazine Antiques, April 2000 issue. I suggest taking a look at the article and them contacting Mr. Brigham.

PS. FYI The original e-mail was from Bill H. In our last correspondence to each other, Bill indicated that he did NOT care about keeping his identity confidential. So I suggested, when he had a moment, that he should reply directly to WEV's post.
