Conference: Goldsmiths and Bankers as Collectors
28 October, 2019
In partnership with the National Trust and Waddesdon Manor. This conference will bring together academics and curators to seek patterns of patronage amongst goldsmiths and bankers, an influential and diverse social grouping which has contributed significantly to both our architectural and artistic heritage.
Joining a schedule of esteemed speakers, Goldsmiths' Company Curator Dr Dora Thornton will focus on the gift to the Goldsmiths’ Company in 1919 by James Pierpont Morgan of an Elizabethan double bell salt in silver (pictured) and Dr Irene Galandra Cooper will present the collecting of the 20th and early 21st century banker, Bruno Schroder, through his Goldsmiths’ Court cup by Kevin Coates.
