Publications

The Antique Metalware Society publishes a journal annually and hard copies of the latest edition are distributed to members. Referred to as the Journal of the Antique Metalware Society (JAMS), back issues are available for purchase at £12 each, and more information on their content may be viewed by following the sub-menu item to “Journal – Issue Contents”.

As well as a copy of the Journal, members receive two Newsletters, titled “Base Thoughts”, per year.

Several AMS members are leading experts in their field of study and have published authoritative books on such topics as bronze cooking pots, rush lights, paktong, firebacks, candlesticks and marks on brassware:
