English Silver

The Museum’s collection of eighteenth and early-nineteenth century English silver numbers more than 300 pieces and includes works by masters Paul de Lamerie and Paul Storr, as well as by Hester Bateman, one of the few female silversmiths working in the eighteenth century, and her family. The wide variety and quality of the objects in the collection illustrate the depth and range of silver produced during the period and perfectly complement the BMA’s collection of English ceramics.
