    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.

      Art in the Industry: The Silver of Paul Storr

      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.
