In Europe, the use of silver has been incorporated into the decorative arts for more than a thousand years. The use of precious metals to decorate one’s home has been an indicator of class, prosperity and style for centuries. The Continental silver we offer is high quality, and the pieces we have chosen to showcase here represent a cross section of some of the items we carry.
We do our best to carry a range of silver from European makers both earlier and later. While we offer a wide variety of earlier antique European silver, we also have a strong collection of hollowware items and flatware sets from innovative late 19th and early 20th century European silversmiths such as Puiforcat and Odiot representing France and the renowned Danish master, Georg Jensen.
