About

Explore the evolution of silver tableware and dining conventions from the 1600 to today through the world-renowned silver collection of the Goldsmiths' Company.

Made for the Table explores the evolution of silver tableware. Exquisite exhibits made by silversmiths over the last five centuries are brought together, to consider the influence of function on design.

From candlesticks and cutlery to serving dishes, silver tableware has been the focal point of table settings for more than 500 years. These decorative yet functional objects traditionally denote status and continue to add stylish accents in a contemporary setting. Today, despite vast changes in taste and style, the UK’s leading contemporary silversmiths are still inspired to make extraordinary handmade objects for the table.
