A rare opportunity to see silver pieces from the Silver Trust’s Downing Street collection regularly used at state functions alongside selected works by members of Contemporary British Silversmiths. This exhibition showcases some of the finest pieces in contemporary silver which capture the artistry, variety and skill of current silversmithing practice and is being run as part of the London Design Festival.
Where: Victoria and Albert Museum Sackler Centre, Exhibition Road entrance.
When: 19-26 September 2010, 10 – 17.45 daily.
Contemporary British Silversmiths would like to thank Jane Carr (who recently curated “Handmade: A British Craft Exhibition” at Fortnum and Mason) for helping us select pieces for the show.
