Silver cups, teapots, and spoons were not just for show. They were a good way to "store" your assets. Skilled smiths transformed coins and outdated silverware into fashionable pieces for the dining room, parlour, and personal adornment. Drop in and see how our silversmiths turn ingots into works of art.

The work of a Silversmith in the 18th century was considered art and is still true today. Silversmiths cut, shape, and file sheets of silver with precision to create jewelry and decorative teaspoons, among other items. These items can be found for sale in the Golden Ball.
