Channel Island Silver – Talk at 16 New Street with Peter Le Rossignol
25 September 2017, 7:00 pm–8:15 pm£10 - £12
Most of the silverware made in the Channel Islands was manufactured during a period of Religious persecution in France and political unrest in England, the former bringing many Huguenot craftsmen into the Island. This fascinating talk with local historian and expert Peter Le Rossignol traces the history of silver manufacture in the Channel Islands through the ages – from the early spoons with trifid ends to the more sophisticated Hanoverian bowled shell back teaspoons of the mid to late 18th century, together with grander items such as coffee pots, candlesticks and salvers. A small collection of Channel Island silver will be on display.
Venue: 16 New Street
Time 7:00 p.m.
Duration 1:15 hours
Price: £10 Members; £12 Non-Members to include a glass of wine
