The spring silver sale covers over 500 lots - from the medieval to modern, from across the world. Items of note include fine examples of Iraqi nielloware such as the gold mounted three-piece coffee set by Onaisi, a selection of rare 18th century American Colonial silver headed by a 1740s Boston salver by William Simpson, and a selection of pieces by famed modern Isfahan silversmith Jouzdani bought in 1995.

English silver is comfortably represented, beginning with a Plantagenet diamond point spoon and a pair of fine 'Egyptomamia' salts from the Lonsdale service by premier Regency silversmiths Digby Scott and Benjamin Smith.
