It encourages innovation and the sharing of skills to ensure the future of contemporary silver and supports established and emerging makers in their careers.

The Wellington Collection is an internationally important collection of paintings, silver and porcelain. Many of the items were presented to the 1st Duke of Wellington after Waterloo. It includes the Portuguese Centrepiece, one of the finest pieces of neo-classical silver in Europe, which took 150 men four years to create.
