Silver has long been used as currency, jewelry, décor, and the subject of fascination. The upcoming Remix: American, English & Continental Silver auction presented by Rago will feature this enduring material, especially examining its role at the dinner table. Silverwork from around the world is highlighted, including lots from China, India, Europe, the United States, and beyond.
Silver table settings and decorative pieces from Tiffany & Co. are of particular interest, including works of varying styles and artistic movements. One of the brand’s sterling silver wine coolers stands out with its playful cherubs and miniature grave vines. A statement piece made near the end of the 19th century, the wine cooler contrasts with Tiffany & Co.’s more modern designs, including a minimalistic but dimpled carafe.
The precious metal looks different throughout this auction but shares a common lean towards elegance. A pair of Danish candelabras embraces modernism, while detailed tea sets from the East demonstrate the flexibility of silver. Its uses in the decorative context are also acknowledged in this auction—a sterling silver model of a Rubik’s cube celebrates the toy’s fifteenth anniversary.
