Over the years Scottish provincial silver has become very collectable and highly sought after. Scottish town silversmiths seldom sent thier plate to Edinburgh or Glasgow to be assayed and then hallmarked. Instead, they marked the silver with a makers mark or town mark or many combinations of these and other marks. This is what makes Scottish provincial silver so collectable. We pride ourselves in bringing you some of the best of Scotland’s craftsmanship from the past.
