Jack Shaw & Co. was established in Ilkley in 1945 and is now owned and managed by myself, Jon Shaw, Jack’s son. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the antique silver business with over 50 years working in this industry gaining my expertise both in London and the provinces.
London proved invaluable in teaching me the intricacies of the trade and with auction houses such as Sotheby’s, Christie’s and other prestigious auction houses my knowledge of the major and lesser known silversmiths was continually being developed.
Quality always being the main driver in the products I sell and source. I specialise in antique silver, attending fairs around the country and operating my own website. Whilst trading mainly in the UK and Europe I do offer my collection on a worldwide basis by arrangement. I am also able to source products according to my customers personal taste be it porringers, apostle spoons and other quality items such as canteens of cutlery.
As a recognised professional my services are often used in respect of validation of products by the organisers of trade fairs and I am pleased to advise that this further enhances my business knowledge in ensuring that my products are always of good quality and at a fair price.
I look forward to seeing you at one of the future fairs but in the meantime please browse my website or give me a telephone call and we can discuss your requirements.
