MAKING A STATEMENT

When it comes to making a statement, nothing quite compares to silver. From the epic, grandiose centrepieces of the Victorian period, to the restrained elegant forms of the 20th century, from large decorative models such as Nefs, to the rare and whimsical animal claret jugs of the 19th and 20th centuries. Whatever your statement is, say it loud and make it heard.
