THE WORLD FAMOUS LONDON SILVER VAULTS, THE HOME OF SILVER SHOPPING
Located in Chancery Lane, between the City and West End, The London Silver Vaults is home to the largest retail collection of fine antique silver in the world. Behind the huge safe doors and within its vaulted walls, you can find anything from a champagne swizzle stick to a full size silver armchair! Although English silver predominates, there are 30 specialist retailers here selling designs and precious objects from every corner of the world. Its unique setting makes the Vaults one of London’s most unusual shopping destinations.
Known as the home of silver shopping, the Vaults have sold to private buyers, collectors, decorators and the international trade for over 60 years. They offer the greatest variety of silver, anywhere. Every period and every style is here, dating from the 16th century to some of today’s best modern work. The shops are a buyer’s delight offering silver, old Sheffield Plate and silver gilt tableware, cutlery, decorative pieces, gifts, jewellery and watches, as well as collectors’ items such as stamps. All the shops here are independent businesses, most of them family-run, some now in their third generation.
The London Silver Vaults is an unusual, interesting and exciting place to explore. Our entrance is on Southampton Buildings at the corner of Chancery Lane.
Bespoke commissions, engraving, repairs and restoration, cleaning and re-silvering can be undertaken. Replacement glass parts (eg liners for salts, epergnes) can be sourced. Advice on provenance, dating, valuation (including for probate) and insurance is is also available. Customers looking to complete or augment cutlery/flatware sets can source new or antique additions, or shops will track down specific patterns for them.
