The Goldsmiths’ Company is honoured to present a retrospective to celebrate the work of Fox Silver at Goldsmiths’ Hall this summer.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the work of Fox Silver, revealing Serena and Richard Fox’s collaborative partnership over the last 40 years. It includes iconic pieces, from F1®️ trophies to Goldsmiths’ Company commissions, pieces from private collections, Downing Street, Bulgari, Lambeth Palace and a collection of fine jewellery.

Alongside the exhibition will be a programme of talks, interviews, private tours and handling sessions and a Goldsmiths’ Centre Creative Links workshop held in the Goldsmiths’ Company Library. A brand new book about Fox Silver will be launched alongside the exhibition, accompanied by a short film by documentary filmmaker Sarah Fox, charting the journey of the Formula 1®️ Abu Dhabi Grand Prix trophy from workshop to track.

I’ve seen countless trophies and said that they should not be used as they did not compare to the masterpieces designed by Richard and crafted by Fox Silver. Each trophy is a symbol of celebration and excellence.” Bernie Ecclestone
