Dressed for Dinner - The London Silver Vaults

Exhibition preview

A NEW selling display showcasing the finest silver for the dinner table continues at London’s historic silver shopping emporium, The London Silver Vaults, until May 24, 2014. Entitled Dressed for Dinner, it presents the very best silver accessories any modern or traditional dining table could ever need.

Today’s open-plan dining spaces give an opportunity to display and appreciate, in pride of place, a few choice articles of stunning English silverware designed to adorn the table: a pair of candlesticks, a silver fruit bowl.

Dedicated dining room users relish the prospect of setting out all the best silver to create a special ambience for guests, from silver wine coasters to salts and serving spoons. Whichever your living style, fine silver is the graceful accent to any dinner of occasion!

Dressed for Dinner brings together the finest silver for the dinner table designed in the last three centuries and still in use and enjoyed today. It also presents ideas to Vaults’ visitors of the breadth and variety of stock throughout the shops.

The 30 shops of The London Silver Vaults offer the widest retail collection of silver – English and international, antique and modern – for sale in the world.

And coming to The London Silver Vaults this summer: Might and Magnificence: Silver in the Georgian Age (June 2 to October 4, 2014).

2014 is the 300th anniversary of the accession of George I and The London Silver Vaults will be marking the occasion with a selling presentation of Georgian silver. A flowering of silver design in the ‘long century’ from Restoration to Regency was spurred by an increase in British wealth and power on the international stage. Silver of the time demonstrated the might and magnificence of diplomats and aristocrats, and as the 18th century progressed, the rising affluence and influence of the merchant and middle classes.
