Annie Clarkson Silver

In this Section

In 1927, Annie donated at least 10 items of family silver to the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Dating back to as early as 1700, these items most likely passed through various branches of the family down to Annie. By giving them to the Met, Annie preserved these masterpieces of the silversmith’s craftsmanship for future generations. Many of the pieces are on public display at the Met. The images below provide basic information on each piece. Each link will take you to further information on the Met website, including a more detailed description and provenance (history of ownership) of each piece. The accession number is the identification number the Met uses for each piece. The galleries listed are in the American Wing at the museum. Gallery 774 is an “open storage”
area, where many items are placed together and may be identified only by their accession number.

We wish to thank the Metropolitan Museum of Art for its help making these images available. The museum is located at 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street, New York.
