We are delighted to present this stunning Argentium Silver mace, commissioned by Dame Janet Ritterman (Chancellor of Middlesex University) and made by Richard Fox (Fox Silver) - a UK silversmith, famous for his work for Rolls Royce cars and Formula 1 racing trophies.
The body has been manufactured in Argentium Silver using traditional silversmithing techniques, with water-jet-cut titanium seaxes at the head of the mace – symbolising the synergy between modern and traditional studies taught at the university. Enamelled and engraved detail shows the history of the University.
Argentium Silver was developed by Peter Johns at Middlesex University. Richard Fox was one of Peter’s students and later became a member of staff at the university.
