About Antique Silverware

One of the first things you need to know about collecting antique silverware is how to determine whether or not the piece is in fact real silver. If a piece is not inscribed with the word 'sterling,' then it probably is not sterling silver. The word 'sterling' can be found on American silver dating from 1860 on. Early American silver is very rare and was usually marked with only the maker's name or initials. It will also be marked as '925 silver,' which represents the ideal alloy of silver and copper. If you take good care of it, sterling antique silverware will last forever. In contrast, silverplate has the maker or company name and often includes terms such as 'A1' or 'quadruple plate.' It has a life cycle of about 20 years. Unlike sterling silverware, it has no resale value. Therefore, if you plan to collect antique silverware, sterling silver is your better choice.Once you have determined the authenticity of the antique silverware, your next step is to reflect upon your personal tastes and lifestyle patterns. It is possible to collect all manner of antique flatware and tableware, as it has always been a ubiquitous product. Your particular choice of silverware depends on how often you will be using it and your own unique sense of style.Additionally, some collectors like to specialize in a specific type of antique silverware. They may collect from either a specific era or designer. Some focus on one unique pattern and others collect particular pieces. However, unless you are a total purist, do not be afraid to mix and match patterns. That being said, no matter what style you choose, antique silverware can add elegance to even the simplest of table settings.
