A Letter From The President of Corbell Silver
Firstly, I would like to thank you for visiting our Website which I think is very exciting. The Castle you see has been the Corbell Logo since 1956 when Mr. Corbell started all this.
Our website gives me a unique opportunity to write to you, introduce Corbell Silver and our products while passing along information I believe you'll find helpful and interesting.
Corbell has been in the antique business for over fifty five years and making authentic reproductions for all of them, however there have been many differences since 2001 when I took over the realm from Mr. Corbell.
We now have over 8000 items for sale and excited about the fact we have now introduced English Pewter to our line consisting of a large range of Baby items and Barware including a fantastic collection of Flasks.
We also have a great selection of Refurbished Hotel silver, which consists of between 10 -15 microns of Silver, which is 3 times more than the average.
We are also the sole US Distributor for Ari D Norman consisting of 2000 English Sterling items.
Corbell Silver brings considerable experience and a practiced eye to choosing pieces for reproduction. Corbell Silver selects from its own collection of antique silver, through the courtesy of a museum, or on loan from a private collector. While our primary reference source is silver, several pieces in our line were inspired by classic or antique designs in other media.
The skilled hands of a silversmith, complemented by the talent of a chaser, an engraver, a caster, to the final polishing - each contribute to our finished product. Original dies (some over 150 years old) or new tools are often used to duplicate parts for hand assembly. Craftsmen mainly in England lend their skills to produce pieces to our order. Several have been making exclusive items for us for over 45 years.
We make different pieces in a variety of metals - Most of the reproductions are Copper or Nickel based and now Lead free Pewter.
Gentle cleaning with a high quality polish and soft cloth will keep your silver gleaming and little care is required to retain its beauty.
Quality, value and authenticity have and will be our goal…and we feel we have succeeded with this unique collection. Mass-production influences so much of our daily life that it's a pleasure to create things made the old-fashioned way. Hope you agree!
