Hamilton & Inches


Hamilton & Inches was founded by Robert Kirk Inches and his uncle James Hamilton at Prince’s Street in Edinburgh in 1866. The leading silversmiths and jewellers of Edinburgh, the company was soon recognised by Queen Victoria in 1893 with a Royal Warrant. The only Scottish manufacturing goldsmiths company that can trace roots back to the 19th century, this highly reputed firm continue to create breathtaking pieces that attract the attention of collectors at auction.

Our specialist silver auctions include Fine & Classic Sales, as well as 20th Century Design Sales. For an up-to-date auction valuation of your collection, contact our specialist team.
