Silver Collection Mayfair Auction Overview

John Pye Auctions Luxury Assets department in Mayfair’s Old Bond Street celebrated its first Christmas in style, playing host to a glittering array of Silver and Flatware, consigned for auction by one of their corporate clients.

This unique and breath-taking collection, which fused an eclectic mix of antique and modern collectable pieces, attracted budding silver enthusiasts, traders and collectors, all of whom could appreciate the sheer quality and quantity the sale had to offer.

Costume dramas, such as the likes of Downton Abbey, have helped popularise silver’s comeback as a luxury collectiable and appreciating asset and with home entertainment on the rise, sales in Silver Flatware have increased, adding a certain opulence to the dining table.

Antique and auction programmes have also driven popularity and demand, with smaller pieces including Compacts, Vinaigrettes and Trinket boxes making excellent collectables whist being easily accessible.

Objects d’art from the auction included a Sugar Dredger dated 1921, a beautiful chased cream jug dated 1846, a wonderful George III Silver Inkstand hallmarked Sheffield 1817, and a large Silver Platter by the well know brand Mappin and Webb.

It was a fantastic opportunity to purchase a piece of history with an affordable price tag. The highlight of the sale was an impressive George III Silver Gilt Racing Trophy hallmarked 1805; with beautiful ornate detailing on the handles and impressive grand stature it was inevitable it would hit the mark on the day.
