Overview
-

This catalogue displays the magnificent Schroder collection of Renaissance Silver, which was formed between 1870 and 1930 and includes outstanding historic objects from England, Germany, Italy and elsewhere. Intended as works of art, many incorporate rare or exotic materials, and their complex designs and dense programs of ornament reflect the intellectual pre-occupations of the 16th century mind.
