The information on the exhibit is taken from the Telfair Museum's website.

The Story of Silver in Savannah:
Creating and Collecting Since the 18th Century

Telfair Academy March 5 - August 1, 2010

    This exhibition examines the important role Savannah played in the production and collection of silver in Georgia's largest coastal city. With some exceptions, silver manufacturing in Savannah lasted approximately a century, from the second half of the eighteenth century to just before the Civil War. However, collecting the precious metal in its decorative form continues to the present. Building on the Telfair Museum of Art�s Savannah-related silver holdings, this notable exhibition and accompanying catalog brings together numerous public and private collections that feature Savannah-made silver as well as wares made in America and Europe. Adding to the Telfair's growing work on Savannah's material culture, The Story of Silver in Savannah will feature more than 400 pieces of silver connected to the city. From simple spoons made by Savannah silversmiths to elaborate tea sets and dinner wares owned by historic Savannah families to contemporary collections featuring important examples of American and English silver, this show will explore the evolving relationship between this prized metal and the inhabitants of Savannah.
