Antique Silver Valuations and Sales
What we value
Antique Vault’s silver department values and sells pure and plated silver items, as well as specialist objects of vertu such as snuff boxes and card cases.
The Antique Silver Market
The price of silver per ounce reached a record high in 2011. Although this led to a rush of antique silver items being sold for scrap at the time of the peak, this trend hasn’t continued. Prices for rare and important items of antique silver continue to exceed expectations, with the quality of craftsmanship having a large impact on sale value.
Most Expensive Sales
The most expensive piece of silver ever sold at auction was sold at Sotheby’s New York in 1996. The Louis XV soup tureen – made by silversmith Thomas Germain in 1733 – sold for $10.2m.
