Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers
The Worshipful Company of Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers
is one of the Livery Companies
of the City of London
. The Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers were incorporated by Royal Charter
in 1693; the City granted it the status of a Livery Company in 1780. The craft originally associated with the Company, the making of gold and silver thread for uniforms or ceremonial clothing, has declined; the Company no longer retains a link to such a trade. Instead, the Company functions as a charitable body.
The Gold and Silver Wyre Drawers' Company ranks seventy-fourth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Amicitiam Trahit Amor, Latin for Love Derives From Friendship.
