Silver sale in Saltaire

LONDON Selection's focus last week (ATG No 2091) on contemporary silver offered a selection of current exhibitions by today's top silversmiths.To add to that list is The Mighty Metalsmith: Decorative and Domestic Metal and Silverware from May 23 to July 7 at the Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery at Salts Mill, Saltaire, near Bradford, a selling show from 13 metalsmiths.

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful," said William Morris, which neatly encompasses a large section of the collecting field and Abigail Brown's silver salt and pepper bowls pictured above fulfil both of his criteria.

Created from a flat sheet using a hammer-forming technique, these 22ct fine silver-giit dishes have been exhibited at the Goldsmiths' Hall and Fortnum & Mason and are one of Abigail's most successful designs. The pair are priced at £1500 at the show.
