Tuesday 28th October 2014

The Annual Kirkoswold Silver Study Day, presented by Jolyon Warwick James, is in association with Brian Abbott of Abbott’s antiques.

It will be held on Tuesday 28th October at Gordon Golf Club,
2 Lynn Ridge Avenue, Gordon, on Sydney’s North Shore, from 9.30 am to approximately 6.00 pm.

It is small, friendly and informative for all levels of knowledge and experience and takes place in pleasant Golf Club surroundings with plenty of parking. Jolyon Warwick James, Anne Harbers and Ben Staunton will be speakers. This is the eighth year the event has been held. It retains its
original title of “Kirkoswold” even though we have moved (but not far) from the splendid mansion which originally gave its name to the event. This year we honour the late Brian Eggleton who had been a regular speaker at the study day.

The day includes illustrated talks, discussions, handling sessions and, finally, a reception at Abbott’s Antiques in Turramurra. Lunch, refreshments and “lecture notes” are included.

1.'HIDDEN TREASURES’ - BRIAN EGGLETON’S COLLECTION (JWJ). This is not a survey of Brian’s eclectic collection but a study of why he collected what he did. It was in fact very focused.
We explore this idea with numerous illustrations from his collection.

2. IRISH SILVER HALLMARKING (JWJ). Continuing our study of hallmarking around the British Isles, this time we visit Ireland. Where was it’s silver hallmarked? How did the provinces cope?
What marks were used?

3. SWEETENERS – SUGAR AND SILVER IN IRELAND (BS). A practical look at how silver implements and receptacles were used with sugar and improved our table manners!

4. SILVER IN MOTION – AMAZING AUTOMATONS (AH). Automatons have for centuries been a symbol of aristocratic play and wealth. We will consider the famous Silver Swan of Bowes Museum and the Gold Peacock from the Hermitage, St Petersburg, as well as many other beautiful examples, less known, but enticing to explore.

5 HOW TO RESEARCH YOUR SILVER COLLECTION (JWJ). How do you go about researching your silver? What do you need to do? This is principally about making a plan to follow through with occasional suggestion as to where to look.

6 YOUR HIDDEN TREASURES IDENTIFIED (JWJ & AH). All attending are invited to bring along three or (limit of) four treasures for discussion and identification. Silver and plated wares can be brought along, but please, no jewellery.

6. RECEPTION AT ABBOTT’S ANTIQUES – we arrange transport to Brian Abbott’s third generation family antiques business, nearby. He has lots of silver.
