Silver

Overview

Sotheby’s Silver department offers a wide variety of antique and modern English and European Silver as well as American Silver from the 15th to 21st centuries. Our sales regularly feature pieces by renowned silversmiths of many nationalities including Paul Storr, Paul de Lamerie, Robert Garrad and Tiffany.

Our international team of seasoned specialists in London, New York and Paris works closely with their colleagues throughout Sotheby’s worldwide locations to source the most desirable examples and to promote them to the world’s most likely buyers. Our specialists have presided over hundreds of auctions of the finest silver from famous collections and have achieved exceptional results for our consignors. In addition to holding the record for any piece of silver and the record for any piece of American silver, in 2010, Sotheby’s secured the auction record for English silver with the sale of the Great Wine Cisterne of Thomas Wentworth for $3.8 million.
