Prize Draw Winner Collects Her Prize
Mrs Susan Crossland, from York, our winner in the 60th Anniversary Prize Draw, was presented this week with vouchers worth £1,000 to spend in the London Silver Vaults. On a summer trip to London earlier this year she resolved to pay a visit to one of her favourite haunts, the London Silver Vaults, and the competition had just opened. So now as the lucky winner she is looking forward to doing some special shopping for silver gifts before Christmas.
There is no shortage of choice among the 25 shops in the Vaults: from hearts and flowers engraved on this Edwardian pierced fruit dish shown to her by Steven Linden, chair of the Dealers’ Association, to metal and brass anti-aircraft binoculars from the 1950s, restored and polished for the Argenteus shop.
