Cleveland Silver

Objects have hidden stories. The marks on the base of a piece of silver can indicate its age, maker, and origin. Join Jennifer Pitman, an expert from Rago Arts and Auctions, to explore what we can learn by taking a closer look at silver, and exploring the differences between silver, silver plate and Sheffield plate.

Participants will have the exclusive opportunity to carefully handle items from HSP’s collection, including some belonging to Grover Cleveland’s family.

Guests are also invited to bring their own silver pieces for identification and valuation following the talk (appointments required).

Program reservations can be made using the form below. Please call Eve Mandel, Director of Programs and Visitor Services, at 609-921-6748 x102 to make an appointment for an appraisal.
