A fine London silversmith.

Roberts & Dore

Roberts and Doré has a distinguished pedigree dating back to 1908 when Thomas Roberts, a respected figure in the City of London, was unable to source silverware of the quality he desired. Establishing himself as a manufacturing silversmith and cutler, he gathered together some of the best craftsmen in the country and took on extensive premises in London’s Hatton Garden (which soon had a reputation for being the finest silver showrooms anywhere in London).

The business was an immediate success. Tom’s renowned refusal to compromise on quality and design soon saw his craftsmen supplying the top London stores and his pieces were exported throughout the World; including special commissions for international royalty, and many governments. Their old letter headings show “Contractors to H M Government”. He was also responsible for producing a special trophy for the American Kennedy dynasty. Carrying on the tradition, as late as 1990, Roberts and Dore were appointed as silversmiths to The Royal Guard of Oman.

Roberts and Doré continued to flourish through three generations of the Roberts family. Tom’s son, Trevor, joined in 1926 and Trevor’s sons, Henry and Kim, joined in 1958 and 1968 respectively.

During the two World Wars, the company’s expertise was harnessed in supplying cutlery and food containers to the troops.
