Silver is our passion
If you have an interest in silver, be it idle curiosity or a hunger for owning the best, we at Koopman Rare Art make it our business to provide you with that opportunity. Certain names as in any field of art, spring to mind when you consider silver. Just as Rembrandt is to the Old Masters, great silversmiths such as Paul de Lamerie, Paul Storr, and Garrard were the innovators and master craftsmen in silver. Koopman Rare Art, hold the largest selection of works by these pre-eminent silversmiths, providing London with antique silver of the highest quality and design.
We are situated at the entrance to the London Silver Vaults
London's most prestigious dealer in antique silver, we are located on Chancery Lane, a stone's throw away from the historic Lincoln's Inn Fields. We deal in antique silver dating from as early as 1500 through to the modern day, objects of vertu and gold boxes. Whether European, American or Asian, it matters not; what does matter is quality and design.
Koopman Rare Art have a major presence at annual antique fairs across the world reaching an international audience, exhibiting the highest quality antique silver. We exhibit at TEFAF Maastricht, Masterpiece in London, Fine Art Asia in Hong Kong and TEFAF New York Fall.
Koopman Rare Art have just returned from TEFAF New York Fall:
“The Fair has definitely established itself as a major event in the international art calendar. Aside from sales, the interest and enthusiasm for great works of art was palpable.”
This is the first book to be devoted to Paul Storr since the appearance of N.M. Penzer’s classic work Paul Storr: the Last of the Goldsmiths, in 1954, it offers a reassessment of Storr’s life and work. “We can see the personality of Storr emerge from his business dealings, and from the silver he produced,” remarks Hartop, the author of eight books on antique silver. “Storr’s amazing achievement was the sheer scale of his activity, and the ingenious way he merged creative talent and cutting-edge technology. Koopman Rare Art sponsored this publication as part of their continued effort to support the heritage of antique silver and important London silversmiths such as Paul Storr.
