Piers Rankin began his career with a 6 year apprenticeship at the London and New York company of silver dealers, S J Shrubsole. He also studied at the Sir John Cass School of Art and in 1979 was awarded a City & Guild London Institute Diploma in Silversmith work and Allied Crafts. The weekends and holidays were spent working his own market stall in Camden Passage, Islington which is famed for its antique trade and then he opened his first one room shop in the Mall Antique Arcade, staying there for almost ten years. In 1994 he moved further along the Passage and now has the luxury of a three floor shop, two of which are filled with high quality English silver (and some foreign), silver plate, old Sheffield plate and glassware.
