On a comparative scale, Cork silver is much rarer than Dublin silver. However, there was silversmithing going on in other towns around Ireland, including Galway, Kilkenny, Limerick and Kinsale. These are all incredibly rare, and highly valuable.
(Technically, much of the work produced in these towns would not be considered silver, as they were never submitted to the assay office in Dublin for hallmarking. Some examples do exist which were hallmarked, but the majority were not, as it was too dangerous to send the goods all the way to Dublin, a long journey in those days.)
One example of a silversmith working in Kinsale is Michael Schuler, whose maker’s mark we see below. We specialise in the rarest and most collectable Irish silverware, please call us on 01-6771638 to see if we have anything that might be of interest.
