Tag Archives: Cork Silver
In this article I discuss Cork silver between 1600 and the early 1900′s. I look at the establishment of hallmarking in Ireland and the effect it had on provincial silver.
After visiting the Cork Public Museum I discuss the permanent exhibition of Cork Silver as well as the Crafts Council of Ireland textiles exhibition ‘Tread Softly’ which has been inspired by the W.B. Yeats poem.
