Thomas Lyte holds a Royal Warrant as Goldsmith and Silversmith to Her Majesty the Queen. We craft bespoke silver and gold models and statuettes to celebrate those once-in-lifetime achievements or celebrations. We do this for private individuals, governments, corporations, clubs, five-star restaurants or hotels and some of the world’s most exclusive brands.
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 custom-make models and statuettes from scratch.
Read on to discover how to commission your own model or statuette.
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, and so are expert at creating silver models and statuettes to order. 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, photograph, doodle or even a vague dream in your imagination and make it happen. A treasured car commemorated in gold? A silver model of your childhood home? There is nothing you can’t ask of us and almost nothing we would not do for you. You can rest assured that if you have commissioned a silver or gold statuette of a favourite horse, dog or cat to mark a loved one’s special occasion, it will arrive on time anywhere on the globe in pristine condition.
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, sporting trophies alongside those one-of-a-kind gifts or awards for special achievements, both personal and corporate, that our silver and gold models and statuettes represent.
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 a masterpiece. Our private clients 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 model or statuette.
