Chorley’s have handled silver and vertu from many fine collections. With pieces sold ranging from the 17th Century to modern pieces by Stuart Devlin and Georg Jensen, we can offer free auction valuations by appointment at the saleroom or your home.

Over the past ten years we have been particularly successful in identifying numerous rare pieces of provincial silver. As well as English and Scottish provincial pieces, we have sold several rare Irish examples including from Limerick and Kinsale. International interest has seen increasing demand for Chinese and Russian silver.

The burgeoning luxury market has seen strong and growing competition for the best objets de vertu. The best pieces are characterised by fine materials (rock crystal, enamel, gold, tortoiseshell), are often by the best makers (Faberge, Cartier) and include cigarette cases, snuff boxes and seal fobs.
