Antique Metalware Society 25th Anniversary Exhibition

The Antique Metalware Society’s 25th Anniversary Exhibition is now online! Over 100 objects are exhibited; all come from members’ collections or reflect their research. The exhibition is also a wider celebration of the base metals and all the ingenuity and artistry with which they’ve been employed. I’m pleased to say my 1843 signed William Rimby cast iron trivet was included.

The aim of the Antique Metalware Society is to increase the knowledge and promote the appreciation of base metal objects of all kinds and historical periods. Society members include leading experts in their fields who have published authoritative books on such topics as bronze cooking pots, rush lights, paktong, firebacks, candlesticks and marks on brassware. Meetings are held twice a year, Spring and Autumn, in England. I’ve never had the opportunity to attend a meeting but hope to one day.

Personally, I’m fascinated by early metal implements, especially those related to home and hearth. There are some amazing antiques in this exposition! Take the time to click on each image and enjoy.

    Update: The AMS website has been updated for 2017. The 25th Anniversary Exhibition has been expanded into an ever-growing Gallery of images. Click on the AMS link in my blog post, then type trivets into the Gallery Search box to view all the trivets on display. You’ll find my Rimby trivet featured there.
