The Silver department holds quarterly which include antique and modern items, flatware, foreign, Scottish and Irish silver, objects of vertu and private collections. The department holds a number of records for highest prices, including a Victorian silver 'castle-top' card case of Dublin Post Office for £9,800, which was part of the Arthur Holder Collection of Silver and Objects of Vertu. Recent highlights also include a Victorian silver centrepiece presented by the King of Netherlands, which was sold for £36,000 to an overseas museum. A highlight of the 29th October Fine Silver & Objects of Vertu auction was a Scottish parcel-gilt silver model of a three-masted galleon, once belonging to John Entwistle, bass guitarist of The Who, which sold for £22,000.
