I am a specialist in twentieth century design, particularly Scandinavian and American silver.  I hold a Masters in the History of Decorative Art, Design, and Material Culture from the Bard Graduate Center in New York.    

I also help people find rare sets and objects, and I can help figure out what to do with their grandmother's silver. I have worked with museum curators and auction houses to provide expertise about lesser documented craftsmen/women and designers.  I will publish work on a couple of these makers soon.  

Feel free to reach me at mcdonald.anna@gmail.com if you have silver you don't understand, or if you love silver and want to talk about it.
