It was great to see the USA Team celebrating with the new FIBA Women's U17 Basketball World Cup after beating France in yesterday's final taking place in Belarus.
Produced in Sterling silver gilt and enamel, the piece was made in our Kent workshop, once again in collaboration with The Works Limited who supplied the design.
The London Assay Office has written a short article going 'behind the scenes' during the hallmarking of our recently produced trophies from Henley Royal Regatta. It's an interesting read and can be viewed here.
We are excited and proud to reveal we have designed and produced 3 new trophies for the Henley Royal Regatta.
The Town Challenge Cup, the Hambleden Pairs Challenge Cup and the Stonor Challenge Trophy, each having been hand made in our Kent workshop, will be awarded to the winners of the women's events that were introduced last year.
We will post some photos of these exceptional pieces once they have been awarded at this year's Regatta. In the meantime, more information and a glimpse of these pieces can be seen in this newspaper article
We can now proudly reveal that we have recently been commissioned to produce the new World Cup trophies for both the Men's and Women's FIBA U17 Basketball World Cups.
Working closely with the design team at Works Ltd, we produced the pieces in Sterling silver gilt with black and white enamel infill, creating a pair of wonderfully contemporary trophies for these exciting events. The trophy reveal film can be seen here
We were immensely proud to recently produce a number of Sterling silver England Cricket Caps, which have been presented to some legends of the game, as can be seen in the ECB's video post here
The caps, handmade in Sterling silver in our Kent based workshops, have been produced to mark the milestone of an England player reaching 100 Test caps for their country.
Will completed a one year pre-apprenticeship course at the Goldsmiths’ Centre and then joined as Steve Ottewill’s apprentice in 2016.
Lewis Towens joined the company and has been bound as an apprentice in 2017 under the guidance of his father, Paul Towens, a Cartier Award winning craftsman.
Both will embark on the development of an apprentice piece of work which will be presented to the Goldsmiths’ Company on the completion of their 5 years. Upon completion they will be awarded the Freedom of the Goldsmiths’ Company as well as the Freedom of the City of London.
Ottewill Silversmiths have had the pleasure of designing and manufacturing a wonderful Chalice and Paten for the Royal Engineers based at Brompton Barracks, Chatham for King’s Chapel Gibraltar. Their long association was being celebrated with this gift presented to Father Mark Jackson at the end of November. Representatives of the Corps of the Royal Engineers travelled to Gibraltar for a special ceremony.
A special feature of the chalice was the use of a piece of polished Gibraltar Rock as the knop. The chalice was used for a communion service and will remain with the Chapel.
