ukas visitLast week, Emma Paragreen, Curator of the Sheffield Assay Office Collection was joined by designer makers Chris Knight and Keith Tyssen to pack away the famous Millennium Punch Bowl.  

This star exhibit has been on display in the Millennium Galleries Metalwork Gallery at Museums Sheffield since 2000. The Millennium Punch Bowl rests on 2000 jacks, each one symbolising a year up to the Millennium. It is accompanied by a ladle and a series of punch cups commissioned between 2000 and 2008 by nationally and internationally renowned silversmiths. 

The Millennium Punch Bowl is owned by Sheffield Assay Office and is one of the largest pieces in our Collection. If you missed the chance to see it in the Metalwork Gallery, you can come and see it up close by booking a place on our Talk and Tour on Friday 27 March from 10:00am to 12:30pm.
