[…] The Silver Fund, which deals in Georg Jensen silver from a gallery near Christie’s London headquarters, also opened a shop on Madison Avenue last year.
Michael James, managing director of the Silver Fund, says: “Probably about 75 per cent to 85 per cent of our entire business is in the US, especially in the New York area. Americans were not coming to us so, we decided to go to them.
“One client of ours, who runs a large retail chain in America, told us recently that he visits New York once a month, but he only comes to London once a year. We have done very well in the last financial year in America and we are very pleased that we opened up there, although it has got noticeably quieter since the war drums started beating in December.”
