Before the mid 18th century, antique silver in Britain was categorised by the name of the reigning monarch of the period. In this way, styles were created such as Elizabethan, William & Mary, Queen Anne, Georgian and Victorian.
Silver producers were located in major cities throughout the British Isles; and so the English, Scottish and Irish antique silver we collect or invest in today originated from London, Sheffield, Birmingham, Newcastle, Exeter, York, Chester, Norwich, Glasgow, Edinburgh or Dublin.
You will notice that many pieces in my collection were produced in London as this was reputed to be the city producing the highest quality silverware. Georgian silver covers the reigns of: George 1 (1714 - 1727), George 11 (1727 - 1760), George 111 (1760 - 1820) and George 1V (1820 - 1830).
All Georgian silver is displayed on this page within Warners Antique Silver. Collectors or dealers can view individual products by clicking on the image. It is then a simple process if you wish to purchase a beautiful piece of antique silver either for investment or just to admire at home.
