    The "Silversmith of Williamsburg" is one of an esteemed series of videos that look at the trades programs of Colonial Williamsburg. Modern day craftspersons are trained under a master-apprentice system to use the tools and techniques of the eighteenth century to create 21st century replicas of colonial objects. In this video the silversmith takes a battered old bowl, and a few scraps of silver and fashions a magnificent new coffeepot.
