Silver spoon dating back to 1440
Since 1986, however, both at university and during his banking career, Duncan spent every Saturday working for a well-known silver dealer in Portobello Road. In 1993, Duncan resigned from banking and since then has built up a specialist silver business focusing on the more unusual areas, such as early, foreign and colonial, ecclesiastical and rare silver.
Duncan has produced silver catalogues and research for a wide variety of private clients and also for institutions, including The Worshipful Company of Armourers and Braziers, The City of Nottingham Museum, The Baltic Exchange, Lloyd’s of London and The Bowes Museum.
Since joining the Antiques Roadshow in 2009, one of his highlights has been discovering a silver spoon that dates back to 1440.
