English Silverware (1690 -1760) Dr. Peter le Rossignol Dr Peter le Rossignol Tuesday 07 May 2019

The influx of Huguenot immigrants fleeing from religious persecution at the end of the 17thC had a huge effect on the English silver trade. Before they came England was an importer of precious metal wares. Dr. le Rossignol will show us how, within a short period of time, England had so raised standards of production that she became an exporter of high quality silverware, supplying the royal courts and aristocracy of Europe and Russia.
