About UsHENLEY HOUSE ANTIQUES HALLMARKED SILVER & PORCELAIN has been selling for over 10 years. Our reputation is one of high praise. We specialize in researching the history of each item. I enjoy items that have a family story. Often I include the actual story of the piece from it's original owner. The sale is not complete until the item is received and treasured by it's new owner.
The great craftmanship of silversmiths of old always tells a story in a great piece of silver. British silver is hallmarked with a set of marks telling the date made, silversmith, city the item was made in and the year. American silver is marked "S" or Sterling with a 925. German silver is marked with a 800. Silverplate is marked with a letter or mark of the maker. I began my exploration of vintage sterling silver brought about by a Nathaniel Mills cigar box. Given to me by my late father who received it as a gift during WWII by a generous grateful British family.
Interesting antique silver, vintage porcelain and glass add beauty and depth to a home. It is always a joy to find a beautiful piece and be able to share it with others.
Most all my items have age and history and, as a result of their past, there will be signs of time and use. This is part of the beauty and life of the piece. If you are looking for museum quality or brand new from a store never touched by history, my pieces will probably not be for you. If you are looking to add an interesting piece to your collection or give a gift that will never be forgotten then shop. I have hundreds of items that are not yet listed, so ask if you don't see it.
I enjoy my customers. It is the best part of the day.
