Silver & Vertu

Silver is one of the most valuable metals which has been used for thousands of years. It was first discovered around 5000 BC during the prehistoric period. In 3000 BC, a large number of artifacts of silver were found in the Sumerian city of Kish.

Since the antique period, the demand for silver has been increasing in the field of art, currency, investment, and industries. In the art world, the wide use of silver results in the growth of more advanced techniques for creating artworks. Most of the vintage and antique silver artwork is valued as the most precious works which are often available on sale at the most prestigious auctions in the world.

Similarly, vertu items are the little objects made of valuable metals, adored as work of art and objects of elegance. Each piece of Vertu conveys a vast history, creativity, and artistic works. The unique pieces, such as gold boxes, were made as gifts for royalty and their families by the finest goldsmiths. They would often prefer gold and silver, set with precious jewels and bright-colored enamels.

Bidsquare offers a wide range of vintage and antique silver and virtue on sale at online auctions, ranging from the 17th century to the 20th century. It features a variety of silver artworks such as chandeliers, silverware, flatwares, silver plates, bowls, kettles, and many more.
