  • Any piece of oxidised silver will be prone to wear, as it is a surface patina. However this can add to the surface and represent your relationship with the object. Alternatively the oxidised finish can be re-applied if you wish. Please contact us if you wish to arrange for an item to be re-oxidised. For general day-to-day care the colour can be maintained by using Renaissance wax, which should be gently applied with a soft cloth and any residue carefully polished off. Please be sure only to use a soft cloth that is not impregnated with any kind of jewellery cleaning substance as this will further remove the oxidisation.
Why we love this product

An alluring, handcrafted decorative piece

This hand raised Britannia silver vessel features a hammered and oxidised finish. It is hammered from a flat sheet over various steel stakes to create the beautiful finished form. The vessel has been planished from the bottom upwards to about halfway, where the rougher, tactile hammer marks remain at the top. This piece is made entirely from one single sheet of Britannia silver. 

The neutral colouring of this silver vessel allows it to fit into any contemporary or traditionally styled space. We recommend displaying this piece where its craftsmanship can truly be appreciated. A beautiful addition to AUTHOR's collection of British made luxury furniture and interior accessories. 

What our customers say...

"We required a business gift to be sent to an associate as a thank you. AUTHOR procured, beautifully packaged and delivered the gift with a lovely hand written note. It was done seamlessly and professionally and was so easy, I wasn’t even in the country! I would highly recommend them if you ever required a gift service."
