Membership of The Silver Society
Members of The Silver Society are collectors, authors, museum staff, researchers, dealers, auctioneers, working silversmiths and other interested individuals who share a common interest in silver. Membership is international with more than a third living outside the United Kingdom. We aim to keep members in touch with the ever-widening study of silver of all periods, places and forms.
We publish an annual journal Silver Studies, to which it is possible to subscribe without being a full member of the Society. It contains a wide range of articles and it is recognised internationally as the most valuable specialist publication for the study of silver. Much of the new research carried out in recent years has been published in the journal. Most back issues are available for purchase.
For members the Society holds about five meetings in London each year, at which lectures are given on new research, but they can also be devoted to discussions and to inspection of objects. All members receive a copy of our Journal. Visits and events are organized several times a year, both in the UK and abroad, to see public and private collections. A newsletter is circulated to members three times a year and information about the Society’s activities is available in the member area of the website.
The membership year is the calendar year (i.e. starts on 1 January).
There are four categories of membership:
