The Silver and Object of Vertu sales are held quarterly and include antique and modern silver, flatware, Irish and Scottish silver, foreign and whole collections, with items spanning a broad range of periods, dates and styles. The demand for quality silver is strong with small objects of vertu and private collections continuing to appeal. 

A highlight for the department is a Henry VIII mazer bowl, which sold for £250,100. 

The department offers a free auction valuation service and can advise on all aspects of selling silver.
