Obituary – Peter Doherty

Peter Doherty (Silversmith), formerly of Branston Street and Northampton Street, sadly passed away on 18th February 2009, aged 60.

For 42 years, he had been manufacturing silverware, specialising in silver boxes and corporate business gifts with special commissions to the highest standards whilst still using traditional methods.

Much of his work was for the crown jewellers, Asprey and Garrards and Hamilton & Inches in Scotland.

He also manufactured silverware for government members and The Royal Family and was also commissioned to make the presentation boxes for Royal Ascot and the Ryder Cup.

Peter was a very popular figure in the Jewellery Quarter over the years and will be greatly missed by many.
