Salisbury Silver


Salisbury was accorded its own 'touch' or plate mark in 1423 but it has never been identified. Documentary references provide the names of many silversmiths working in the city in the 1600s.

This silver two-handled cup is attributed to Thomas Hayward and bears a scratched date of 1672.

Acquired with the financial assistance of the V&A Purchase Grant Fund.
