MID-CENTURY MODERN SILVERWARE

The design movement Mid-Century Modern became popular after the end of World War II, largely influenced by Scandinavian design. The style was characterised by simplicity and natural shapes, and was popular until the late 1970’s. During this period the creativity of silversmiths flourished, and modern designers such as Stuart Devlin became hugely popular.
