Holding a summer soiree? Or just enjoying long languid lunches in the garden? It's a great time to invest in serveware - and buying antiques is always much more fun (not to mention a great investment...) This week we're taking a look at sensational serveware from around the world, to suit every occasion and every taste.
Grays prides itself on it's eclecticism, so you will find options for a full French silver service alongside the more homely delights of English country-house creamware. A large Middle-Eastern or Spanish Moorish style serving bowl is a fabulous way to serve up summer peaches, pears and plums.
And of course we haven't forgotten the beverages ! German claret jugs, American server jugs, even Japanese Sake bowls, you'll find them all here .
