Who is Viners?
Viners has a long and illustrious history as a family of silversmiths in the UK since the late 19th century. Establishing their first manufacturing business in 1908 in Sheffield, specialising in plated hollowware, they were the only one of the first businesses to introduce new cutting edge production techniques.
After the First World War, Viners diversified into cutlery production. They became leading cutlers within the marketplace during this time. Viners were the first cutlers to begin real marketing with specifically designed packaging and advertising campaigns that led to Viners being the most recognised cutlery brand within the UK.
In 2014, The Rayware Group acquired the Viners brand and launched a range of high fashion collections, drawing on the brand’s rich heritage within innovative cutlery design.
Viners today is focused on building the brand and we are excited to have launched our new ecommerce website where customers can browse and buy the full Viners range as well as access a wealth of information including the ever important question of ‘How to set a table’.
