Notable guests included Kathryn Vecellio; Susan Lloyd; Terry Allen Kramer; Wyatt Koch; Jean Tailer; Anka Palitz; Margie and Ed Allinson; Denise and Bill Meyer; Joel Pashcow; Jim Pappas; William Diamond and Regine Traulsen; Cheryl and Gerri Gowdy; Princess and Prince Michel de Bourbon-Parme; Countess Diane de la Begassière; Hashem Khosrovani; Lars Bolander; Lord and Lady Lewington; Marina Zangrilli; Tatiana Platt; Ross Meltzer and Victor Figueredo.

The Silver Fund’s British team, spearheaded by owner Michael James, has not only complemented this particular block’s treasure troves by introducing an exceptional collection of 20th century silver and design, but has also imported his determination to identify the 300 block of Worth Avenue as a destination for those seeking the best in art and design. “During our participation in various art fairs in Palm Beach during the past 17 years, we were waiting for the right space to launch our flagship store. The 300 Block of Worth Avenue was the perfect answer! This art and design block features shops ‘unique to Palm Beach’: all one-of-a-kind shops, full of items curated by the owners themselves. Clients delight in the experience of taking home something special as each shop is an expression of the owners’ unique tastes.” says Michael James.

“I was excited to hear The Silver Fund would be our neighbors. They have the finest reputation and exquisite pieces. Most importantly, after I met Michael and his team, and experienced their warm hospitality, sense of humor, and vision for our block, I was truly delighted! They are a perfect addition to our block and we look forward to working with them. We look forward to participating in Art and Design block events next season,” says Mary Mahoney.
