"Sheffield Silver" refers to silver items produced in Sheffield, England, from the 18th century until the present day. Sheffield became a center for silver production in the 18th century, thanks in part to the availability of locally-mined silver and the city's skilled metalworkers. Many prominent silver manufacturers were based in Sheffield, including James Dixon & Sons, Mappin & Webb, Walker & Hall, Vinters Ltd. and Atkin Brothers. 
Sheffield silver is known for its high quality and craftsmanship, and it was highly sought after by collectors and consumers around the world. Sheffield manufacturers were particularly known for their ability to produce intricate and detailed designs, and many pieces of Sheffield silver feature intricate chasing and engraving. Some common items produced in Sheffield silver include cutlery, tea sets, and candlesticks.
Today, Sheffield silver continues to be highly prized by collectors and enthusiasts, and many antique pieces are considered valuable works of art. The city also remains an important center for silver production, with several manufacturers still operating in the area.
