"A joy to read" "The book affirms to the reader that they should visit Hillwood and see the objects in person" Dean Six, Silver Magazine
"Anne Odom's "Russian Silver in America" is a long overdue addition to the sparse English-language literature on the subject. As all her previous publications, the present volume is exemplarily well researched" Dr. Geza von Habsburg, Faberge Guest Curator, Virginia Museum of Art
"A marvelous overview of the history of Russian silver in its historical and artistic context. Anne Odom surveys the picture of Russian silver from the American perspective with extraordinary facility and erudition....This is a must-have book for anyone interested in Russian silver" Martin Chapman, Curator of European Decorative Arts and Sculpture, Legion of Honor, San Francisco
"Although the topic of Russian silver in American collections is quite specialized, Odom...succeeds in framing it broadly while presenting it in meticulous detail....This book will be of interest to both collectors and fine arts libraries" W. C. Brumfield, Tulane University, CHOICE
