Timothy Martin, of S.J. Shrubsole silver dealers in New York, is an authority on the authenticity and integrity of magnificent and rare items of American and English silver. He will discuss some of the most important pieces of American silver ever to come to the market. He will also address the history of dealing in antiques and the reasoning behind some museum collections.
Tim Martin spent two years acquiring a unique combination of expertise in the care and cleaning of antique silver, as well as antique toilets, sinks, floors and display cases. Following this mercifully brief tenure as janitor and delivery man, Tim Martin began extensive studies of English and American silver in public and private collections in America, England and further afield.
