A Rare Glimpse of a Goldsmiths’ Pavilion

By Linda Tancs

The Goldsmiths’ Company, founded in London to regulate the craft and trade of the goldsmith, received its first royal charter in 1327.   Thanks to its efforts you can be assured of the quality of gold, silver and more recently, platinum.  The guild is housed in Goldsmiths’ Hall, a hidden gem just northeast of St. Paul’s Cathedral at the junction of Foster Lane and Gresham Street.  The palatial-style building is never open to the public except during exhibitions and designated open days.  That’s why the Goldsmiths’ Fair is a great opportunity to steep yourself in its long history.  Taking place from 23 to 29 September and then from 1 to 6 October, the fair gives discerning collectors the world over a chance to meet the up-and-coming designers of jewelry and silverware design.
