From the 1680s to the 1880s there was a succession of twenty-four silversmiths working in Banff, who produced a variety of silver goods including mugs and cutlery. It is a mystery why so many silversmiths worked in the town but a clue may rest with the mercantile shipping trade and wealthy local benefactors in the Lairds of Banffshire.
