The Westminster Treasure. History in Silver 1713 - 2013
This exhibition runs from Thu, 7th Feb 2013 to Sun, 28th Apr 2013
This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 5th Mar 2013
The Wallace Collection will be displaying a unique set of silver inscribed boxes belonging to the Past Overseers’ Society, Westminster.
The collection began in 1713 and, as ever larger cases were commissioned to hold the previous case, they were each covered with etchings of historical events, royal engagements and portraits. The silver is beautiful and the inscriptions are fascinating, intriguing and compelling. Come to the Porphyry Court to see three hundred years of idiosyncratic history continuing up to 2012 with the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
