Silver, Metalware & Coins
Including silver, silver plate, bronzes, Tudric pewter, metalware, objects of virtu, medallions, medals, coins and proof sets.
Hammered, forged, rolled, and moulded, the art of metalware is all about the sweat of creation. In the hands of masters like Archibald Knox, even lowly metals such as pewter were raised from being the poor man’s silver to the ultimate expression of tradition and heritage. In the same way humble minted coins, circulated for thousands of years as low-profile currency, are now experiencing a revival among collectors who revel in their pocket-sized histories.
However you like your objects, from shining sterling silver to soft patinated copper and bronze, great metalware is about appreciating the history and contrast of it all. It is about visually soft and fragile forms created from the strongest of materials, tonal contrasts that melt into one another, and a degree of wear and patina only a life well-lived can provide.
