Fine silver remains highly collectible and sought after by discerning purchasers and no sale is complete without a significant silver section.
Due to our location on Guernsey, Channel Island silver is naturally a speciality and we frequently offer up pieces by all the principal makers: Guillaume Henry, Jean Pierre du Port and Pierre Maingy of Guernsey as well as Thomas Mauger, George Mauger and Jacques Quesnel of Jersey, to name just a few.
A few years ago we were very proud to be asked to arrange the sale of the magnificent private collection of local silver expert Michael Paint. This auction attracted the attention of collectors across the globe.
Needless to say, we are asked to sell all manner of English, Scottish and Continental silverware as well. Indeed a record was set with the sale of a pair of 1645 Charles I silver communion chalices by Patrick Borthwick and Deacon Lamb of Edinburgh, estimated at £30,000 – £35,000 they achieved £69,000.
Silver items include christening cups, tastevins, coffee and tea services, snuff boxes, goblets, rare tankards all manner of tableware including punchbowls, candlesticks and trophies.
