John Bull Antiques

We are a fourth generation family run business discreetly located on the first floor in a building on New Bond Street in London. We have been trading in Silver Antiques since May 1953. We believe that Antique Silver is unique and timelessly valuable, and we strive to bring this belief to life in the items that we have available. We are always happy to help with any queries and questions, and to help you find the perfect item of antique silver. Hallmarked Sterling Silver is an Alloy of pure silver that contains 92.5% Silver and 7.5% other metals.

Pure silver is not practical as it is too soft to make objects out of if they are to be used. 925 is a mark used to indicate Sterling Silver, although in the UK, a full set of hallmarks is required. In order for an item to be able to be sold as Sterling Silver this standard has to be adhered to. This Silver is 950 standard i.e. 95% silver.
