Silver

With over 500 works in silver, the WAG's strong collection of both British and Canadian silver, makes it one of the best in Canada. Though not a comprehensive survey of silver-making in those countries, it contains pieces of immense importance and is indicative of the diverse objects and styles popular over some three hundred years. It provides a solid overview of silver-making in these countries. Since the church was an early patron of silversmiths, ecclesiastic plate is a particularly important aspect of the Canadian silver collection. Domestic silver is also much in evidence in the WAG's collection.
