17th Century silver quaich was made in Banff

September 7 2019

Scottish provincial silver – generally 18th and early 19th Century silver individually hallmarked by smiths working in towns such as Perth, Dundee, Montrose, Elgin and Arbroath – differs from other silver in that at least 90% is made up of flatware, that is, spoons, sugar nips, ladles, and so on. Other pieces, such as a beakers, teapots and snuff boxes, are known as hollow-ware and are extremely uncommon.
