The Pearson Silver Collection | The Highlights

Sworders London Gallery | Cecil Court | 4-15 October 2021

 

An exhibition of highlights from The Pearson Silver Collection will go on view at our London Gallery in Cecil Court for the first time this autumn. The world-renowned collection devoted to post-war and contemporary British silver design will be available to view from October 4-15 (including Saturday the 9th).

Comprising more than 900 pieces by nearly 300 silversmiths, The Pearson Collection is the largest of its kind in private hands and tells the story of the development of silver design from  1945 to the present day. It includes pieces such as Graham Stewart’s bee honeypot, James Dougall’s balloons, a skyscraper clock by Gerald Benney, and Malcolm Appleby’s Allusion Box.
