About Silverware

Antique silverware--forks, knives, spoons, serving ladles, etc.--are coveted items that are passed down through generations. During the Civil War, homes were raided strictly for their silverware because it was easy to transport and could be melted down for money. Household silverware was only popular among the very wealthy until about 1850, when electroplating was perfected and reduced the cost of silverware. Electroplating allowed a layer of silver to be deposited on metal flatware or hollowware, making them more affordable because they were not solid sterling silver. Choosing Antique SilverwareCollectors of sterling silverware have many approaches to their collections. Some stick with a certain manufacturer or era, while others go with a theme like fish-designed forks. Whatever your taste, experts agree that it doesn't matter, as long as the pieces are valuable and authentic. Mixing and matching is also a good way to complete a set of sterling flatware, since most of it is harder to find than the electroplated hollowware versions.Condition, tarnish and monograms are factors that should be taken into account when purchasing silverware. The condition of the pieces is important, but not as much as with other antiques. Signs of use don't detract from value, but heavy tarnish does. Monograms usually make the piece more interesting, but not necessarily more valuable. Monogram removal is available but can damage the piece, so be careful. Make sure the pieces are authentic. Forgeries are rampant--these are just copies of rare or popular patterns. Always check for the maker's hallmark and compare it to existing pieces. Although, since forgeries have been around for centuries, many old marks are not authentic either. Always do your research before purchasing any piece, especially without seeing it in person first.
