The sterling silver Jersey Landmark model of Seymour Tower is based on the tower situated two kilometers out to sea in the Royal Bay of Grouville which was built in 1782 as a part of Jersey’s coastal defenses against French invasion.
Due to Jersey’s close proximity to France, invasion was particularly easy and the low-lying coastal areas were very vulnerable. Thirty-two granite-constructed towers were ordered to be built around Jersey as defenses against invaders. All the other towers were round, as this was considered more effective against the enemy attack but Seymour Tower was of square construction.
We have designed and handcrafted Seymour Tower in sterling silver and finished it using various techniques such as polishing, satining and oxidising. The model is presented on a slice of blue agate.
