Silver & Objects of Vertu
Chiswick Auctions’ Silver Department hosts one of the few dedicated silver sales in London. The department specialises in English, Irish and Scottish silver in addition to having one of the few sole continental silver specialists nationally who handles a variety of French, German, Dutch and Maltease silver. Many of the famous names of Georgian silver have successfully sold in past sales including Paul Storr, Edward Farrell, John Scofield and Hester Bateman. The silver offered appeals to both the collector and domestic buyer alike; ranging from obscure 17th-century spoons to prized Art Deco tea sets.
Objects of Vertu form an important section in the auctions and feature a selection of curios and small items including snuff boxes, bodkins, cigarette cases, necessaires and pin cushions. The small box, worked in precious metals and luxurious materials such as tortoiseshell, mother of pearl and hardstones, is of particular interest to the study and collecting of Objects of Vertu as well as items connected to sewing and scent.
The next auction of Silver & Objects of Vertu will take place on the 20th of June. Entries are now invited.
Please contact the department for a complimentary valuation or to discuss the market.
