Collection: New Zealand

New Zealand made silver items were first produced around 1860. As with most colonial locations, there was no standard hallmarking system for silver. There are a number of makers working in the late nineteenth century through to the middle of the twentieth century. The most common silversmiths appears to be Frank Grady (Wellington) and Benjamin Petersen & Co (Christchurch), both working in the late 1800s, early 1900s. The only book written on the topic is Gold & Silversmithing in Nineteenth & Twentieth Century New Zealand written by Winsome Shepherd. It is a great resource with lots of photos of both items and their marks.
