We have a huge collection of fine quality silverware in our Antiques and Collectables Sale on Tuesday 21 November that is expected to create a great deal of interest.
Comprising around 90 lots, the collection comes from a house in Northumberland and includes a wide variety of objects dating from the 18th century through to the late 20th century. Amongst the many treasures are bowls, candlesticks, spoons, jugs and tankards, as well as inkwells, glove stretchers, propelling pencils and shoe buckles.
One of the earliest pieces is Lot 302, a George II sliver lidded tankard by William Shaw and William Priest of London. Dating from 1751, it carries a price estimate of £400 - £600. Another standout item is Lot 348, a Victorian silver castle top card case made by Nathaniel Mills of Birmingham in 1845. Valued between £400 and £600, it measures 10cm by 7cm and depicts a view of the Houses of Parliament.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire some really impressive examples of finely crafted silver that have been amassed over time not only from this country but also in Europe and further afield in India and Singapore.
