Arguably Sheffield's leading silversmith, Viner's has been producing exceptional flatware, kitchenware, and dinner service items since 1908. Founded by brothers Emile and Adolf Viener (who changed their name to Viner in 1925), this silverware firm also contributed helmets and other war items during World War One. Quickly gaining a reputation for innovative processes, and eye-catching marketing, Viner's became the most recognisable cutler in the UK. In 1930, Viner's was granted a royal warrant from George V. 

Enjoying an enduring appeal owing to their exceptional design and modern functionality, Viner's silverware continues to exceed estimates. Complete canteens of Viner's silver, tea sets with accompanying trays, salvers, and candleabrum all sell well at auction.

Whether you have an individual silver item, or a whole collection of silver, our specialist team can help you to achieve the very best price for your items at auction. Our specialist silver auctions include four Fine & Classic Sales per year. For a free, confidential, and up-to-date auction valuation of your collection, contact our specialist team.
