Mappin & Webb to host Goldsmiths’ Fair silver preview

Mappin & Webb is celebrating its 240th anniversary this spring with new collection Wildfell. This range has been specially created to celebrate the brands history and royal heritage. Presented in sterling silver and 18ct gold, Wildfell takes inspiration from the characteristics of the English West Country rolling landscape and the flowing lines of the Dorest Brooch; a creation from Mappin & Webb’s archive that symbolises the royal history of the brand. The collection offers 17 new delicate pieces.

Mappin & Webb has announced it will host an exclusive preview of contemporary silver from the prestigious Goldsmith’s Fair as part of its 240th anniversary celebrations.

The exhibition will present silver pieces from 23 silversmiths who represent the newest and finest works in contemporary British silver. The event is designed to celebrate Mappin & Webb’s silver history and royal warrants.

In 1775, Mr Jonathan Mappin opened a small silver workshop with the mission to create the most beautifully crafted goods for English high society. Throughout the years, Mappin & Webb has become synonymous with excellence, craftsmanship and all things truly English.

Silver pieces will be available for sale at the preview which will take place at Mappin & Webb’s Flagship store at 132 Regent Street from June 29 to July 28 2015.
