    Silver: From Mine to Masterpiece

    Silver: From Mine to Masterpiece features about 150 objects primarily drawn from Colonial Williamsburg's superb collection of British and American silver. Various aspects of silver will be explored, including silver as a material, fabrication and decorative techniques, and the social role of silver objects in America and Britain. Other areas of interest will be a section on silver made and used in Williamsburg, stunning examples by premiere silversmiths of the period including Paul de Lamerie and Paul Revere, and a display of what is new to the collection.
