When Neil and Gina Smith started collecting some 25 years ago, what frequently attracted them to an individual piece, besides its inherent quality and successful design, was the story attached to the item, the history behind its first home. Often, the original patrons were members of the English nobility and the following lots highlight a few of the fascinating personalities associated with these important commissions. The Neil & Gina Smith Collection, an auction presenting the couple's lovingly curated collection of English silver and furniture, will be offered on 3 July in London.
