Made For The Table The Goldsmiths' Company

A bespoke dining table is laid with newly commissioned silver and a selection of modern glass, ceramics and textiles by leading UK artisans, brought together in a vibrant and colourful display. This modern table setting is introduced by extraordinary silver acquired by the Goldsmiths’ Company over the last 500 years, reflecting its long history of patronage. From serving dishes to cutlery and sculptural bread baskets to wine coasters, the exhibition demonstrates both continuity and a break with tradition. As much as there have been changes in taste and style, domestic silver continues to be a source of inspiration.
