Irish Silver

One of the largest collections of Irish silver in the world, this exhibition traces the development of the silversmith’s craft from the early 17th Century to the present day. It addresses the evolution of design and examines the mining, assaying, and crafting of this precious metal. It also illustrates the various uses of silver - religious, domestic and ceremonial and by means of vignettes seeks to place the objects in their historical and economic context.

Location: National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, First Floor, South Block, Benburb St, Dublin 7.
