Five pieces of silver catching the eye at upcoming auction16 August 2022 Looking at both modern and tradition pieces from silver, it is possible to see the styles and fashions of the age in which they were made reflected in these items.
Silver is bought at auction for many reasons – for example works are purchased as collectables, functional items and decorative pieces. The fact that plenty of auctions on this website offer a regular supply of lots means there is plenty of silver to choose from.

The auction offers 295 silver lots in total which cover a broad range from Georgian and Victorian works to Art Nouveau and Art Deco items, and up to the modernist pieces by the likes of Georg Jensen and Stuart Devlin.
