Silver & Objects of Vertu

Chiswick Auctions’ Silver Department hosts the only dedicated silver sale in London. The department specialises in English, Irish and Scottish silver in addition to offering a broad range of continental silver such as French, German, Dutch and Maltease and Russian silver. Many of the famous names of Georgian silver have successfully sold in past sales including Paul de Lamerie, 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 stylish Art Deco tea sets.

Objects of Vertu form an important section in the sales 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. At Chiswick gold boxes are a regular component of the vertu section ranging from 18th century Paris examples to Faberge pieces.
