Silver Tableware

Under “Tableware” it is possible to find precious silverware, cutlery, candlesticks and other decorative elements made of silver, all of which are important objects for the European table culture. Many of our objects found in this category were initially used for the representation of royals and aristocrats.

Within this sub-category, we exhibit particularly significant “Royal and Noble Silver”. Under these, you can find objects coming from royal and princely silver collections. Until the twentieth century silver collections were stored in castle vaults. The rooms of the silver collection were used for the conservation and storage of the table services. These rooms were thus mostly on the ground floor or sometimes in the basement, in any case, as close as possible to the kitchen, cellar and bakery.
