Philippa Glanville is the director of Waddeson Manor and formerly chief curator in the Department of Metalwork, Silver, and Jewelry at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. Her major publications include Tudor and Early Stuart Silver and Silver, both considered major standard studies. Trained and conversant in many aspects of English decorative arts and social history, Glanville has a special interest in interpretive methods. This has brought her into contact with many areas of research in her field, including the English Rococo, London topography, goldsmithery, and a comprehensive collection of materials left by Henry VIII and now held by England's National Maritime Museum.
