A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER

THE WHAT IS? SILVER DICTIONARY

UK FAMILY CRESTS IN SILVERWARE
ENGLISH, IRISH AND SCOTTISH CRESTS

The crest is one component of a coat-of-arms, which can be used as a simplified symbol on engraved silverware.
Objects frequently borne as crests include animals, mythological creatures, human figures, hands or arms holding weapons, birds.
The family crest is usually accompanied by a Latin motto.
In these pages I present a selection of crests belonging to English, Irish and Scottish families as seen engraved in silver and silverplate objects.
