Old English Pattern Silver Flatware

About Us

Sometime before the Second World War, Isaac Franks and his son Jack started to trade in antiques and collectibles, selling their wares at the street markets of London. Over time they specialised in silver and after the Second World War they took possession of Vault 11 at the London Silver Vaults. In the late 80s, Eric Franks joined Jack in the business and they expanded into the neighboring Vault, doubling the size of the premises.

Today, Eric works with his two sons Jonathan & Daniel. They own 3 large shops in the Vaults with the largest stock of antique British silver in the world including a huge selection of sterling silver flatware and serving pieces. With four generations of experience and as members of LAPADA and CINOA, you can buy with confidence, knowing that you are in safe hands.
