About


 

 

At Forrest and Fraser we use our wealth of experience and expertise to source the finest examples of domestic silverware.

Our specialism is in English, Irish and Scottish silver from the 18th and 19th centuries, a time during which many of the greatest silversmiths combined with remarkable designs and styles, producing truly outstanding creations. It is the usable and beautiful pieces from this golden age of British silversmithing that we offer for sale.

  

Purchasing

                     

The silver we stock is all of some considerable age, often in excess of two centuries, and these antiques tell a story of their unique history. The tangible marks, exquisite engravings, and the care of the generations of owners who have come before, provide attractive patina and desirable individual character. It is the fascinating history and incredible craftsmanship that makes all of the silver we stock covetable as an investment, as well as offering a pleasure that comes from adding your own chapter to an ever unfolding journey.

Whether you are a collector, or an interior designer seeking a piece to complement a contemporary home interior; searching for a unique gift for that special occasion; or considering a remarkable and useable piece of silverware for your own home; we offer a selection of silverware to satisfy your desires.

We work with clients across the globe, dissolving time zones and the restrictions of shop front opening hours, tailoring our service to meet your needs.

Please don't hesitate to ask us any questions you like about any particular piece, or silverware in general,  as we are always delighted to offer assistance in any way we can. If you are looking for a particular piece, either to complement something you already own or to fulfil a particular need then we will always try and find what you are looking for if we do not have any examples in stock.

Individual prices are clearly marked, with discounts available on multiple purchases. We are happy to discuss payment in terms the currency that suits you, and we are able to accept payments in US dollars.
