Military Silverware Commissions

Trusted goldsmiths and silversmiths to Her Majesty the Queen

Thomas Lyte holds a Royal Warrant as Goldsmith and Silversmith to Her Majesty the Queen. We are also proud to be military silversmiths and goldsmiths, creating bespoke military and gold commissions for the Armed Forces.

As an audacious rising star, we are proud of how quickly we’ve established ourselves as a world-renowned company of expert craftsmen, with custom-built workshops that enable us to design and create beautiful bespoke pieces from scratch.

Read on to discover how we can deliver your military silverware and gold.


Who are Thomas Lyte? – Designers, makers, and restorers

We are entrusted with magnificent royal heirlooms and the world’s most important sporting trophies, from the FA Cup to the ICC World Test Championship Mace, as well as some of the finest regimental silverware and bespoke gold and silver for the Amy, Navy Airforce and Marines. We are English to the core, but when it comes to customer service, we lose our British sense of cool and moderation and delight in being positively excessive. Our goal is to take your design, doodle, or even a vague dream in your imagination and make it happen. There is nothing you can’t ask of us and almost nothing we would not do for you, whether it be creating a sword, helmet, statuette or medals, or a ceremonial presentation.

State-of-the-art silver workshops

We never fail because rather than entrusting what we do to anyone else, we’ve built our own state-of-the-art workshops in London, now among the largest and most sophisticated silversmithing and goldsmithing facilities in Europe. We have sourced the latest technology and Britain’s most talented, creative craftsmen, while breathing life back into time-honoured traditional artisan skills by nurturing our apprentices. We oversee every tiny detail and involve our customer at each stage of the process. That’s why today we are being entrusted with magnificent royal heirlooms and the world’s most important sporting trophies alongside our superb military and regimental silverware and gold. We are in tune with military standards of efficiency and so can design and create to order and guarantee to deliver in pristine condition on time anywhere in the world.

Our workshops

“We create trophies and masterpieces to commemorate important international, national and private occasions and to celebrate life’s crowning achievements and moments of joy.”

Kevin Baker, Founder and CEO of Thomas Lyte

Designers and makers of the ICC Test Championship Mace

Experts of design in precious metals

Our in-house design team comprises among the brightest minds in the industry, well-equipped to design from scratch or to translate existing artwork into your bespoke military silver or gold commission. Representatives of the Armed Forces sometimes bring their own ideas and drawings or wish us to work with their chosen artists or design agencies. We are entirely flexible and will work exactly the way you wish us to.

After an initial creative consultation, our team will produce concept artwork and a production schedule to meet your delivery requirements. In many cases we offer a full-size 3D printed model of the final design, allowing you an immersive feel for the piece.
