The April 24th and 25th Fine Silver & Objects of Vertu sale has a heavy leaning towards early silver including several private collections, the most notable of which has been stored in a bank vault for a number of years. A leading item from this collection is a rare James II Irish porringer and cover. A porringer is a type of cup and cover which was often used for eating soups, stews and other liquids.

Following on from the recent success of other collections of spoons in the Fine Silver auctions, the sale includes a private collection of Dog-nose spoons, which features some rare Scottish examples. The sale also includes a 129 lot private collection from a Welsh country house and estimates range from £60 to £3,000. Highlights are a Charles II tankard and collection of four Paul Storr cream jugs. Also, a French silver-gilt and mother-of-pearl dessert service owned by Lord Kitchener, which would have been commissioned between 1902, when he was made a Viscount, and 1914, when he was raised to an Earl.
