Silverware

The department deals with a wide range of objets, emphasizing the importance of cataloguing and bibliographic research so as to offer clients the most exhaustive information possible on the lots up for auction. The Pandolfini Auction House sales catalogues present both domestic and sacred silverware pieces.

In the domestic silverware category pieces on offer range from objects for the table, to tea and coffee services, from candlesticks and candelabras to cutlery and also to coins of various provenance. In particular one could mention the artefacts produced by Florentine, Milanese, Venetian, Genoese, Neapolitan and Piedmontese workshops. Often it possible, through careful bibliographic research on the punch marks of the objects, to discover the silversmith who produced the piece.

European production is also found throughout the sales catalogues especially English and French pieces and American sterling silver decorations.

Regarding silverware put to sacred use, the department focuses on works of art such as chalices, icons with riza, stoups and crucifixes whose origins range from regional Italian production to international production, and date from the seventeenth century up to the present.

Today's market is obviously influenced by the changes in clients' taste and the continuous fluctuations in the value of silver on the financial market. Both these factors are tackled by this department without however ignoring quality and the date of the pieces.

Usually sales take place every six months at the same time as the jewellery and watches auctions.
