Whether a hobby or an investment, here are eight pointers for acquiring antique sterling and/or silver plate flatware.

1. Select a silver: Style, Historical Era or Artist.

Reflect upon your way-of-life and personal tastes, then arrive at choices that will be a good fit. Do you envisage using your antique silver flatware fairly often, or only use items from your collection for memorable occasions and holiday celebrations?

There are many niche aspects of antique silver flatware collecting. Some collectors zero in on a certain design pattern, while others collect a specific maker or historical period.

Some antique sterling silverware collectors direct their attention on a distinct style of antique silver flatware, such as: sauce boats or coffee pots, while others have more diverse interests and extend into regional silver flatware, such as Middle Eastern or Russian, or pieces from specific makers, such as: Christofle or Oneida Rogers.

2. Mix-n-Match

Do not be afraid to mix and match patterns.

This collecting concept brings awesome aesthetic elegance to a table setting. This is a delightful option especially with difficult-to-find, or rare silver flatware patterns. And will help for putting together a set large enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Wear or Damage

A history of overuse does not always lower the worth of antique silver flatware or silver plate flatware, while signs of abuse may or may not. For instance, minimal damage or blemishes on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lessen its value. The price of a tarnished piece should be lower than retail, of course. Be mindful of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be fake and disguise apparent wear, damage or repair. Buying tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an an alternative, but reviewing them closely for wear remains a fundamental skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

Many collectors view classic, detailed monograms as a lost form of art and historically important. It does not decrease the desirability or appeal of a silver flatware collectible when a monogram is present. Most pieces are, however, have more value without a monogram. As you become more familiar with antique silver and sterling silver flatware, you will be able to detect if the monogram has been removed. Monogram removal can damage a piece of antique silver and dramatically minimize its actually worth.

5. Authenticity

A few collectors downgrade antique silverware pieces that have been updated, such as those with replacement knife blades. Silverplated knife blades are often found with wear. They can easily be repaired on hollow handle knives, Certain collectors prefer to have them refitted with stainless steel blades. However, stainless steel was not introduced in flatware crafting until the early 1920s. This is one of those aspects of collecting that can be a matter of personal preference, but you do need to be alert that your antique silver flatware may lessen in value if you switch the knife blades.

6. Repairs

Dents, or general types of damage can be repaired by a silversmith. A silversmith is also skilled for replating silver flatware pieces. The cost can be prohibitive for more common items, but it is truly worth it to restore rare antique silver flatware pieces. cut to appear to be like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon has been altered to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.

8. Fake Antique Silver Flatware

New forgeries in favorite and rare pattern designs appear for sale on a regular basis online. Examples include:, salt spoons and scarce pieces such as assorted knives, forks and spoons. Several of these items have no craftsman's stamps. Moreover, forged maker's marks in silver have appeared for hundreds of years. The age of an antique silverware piece does not always indicate it's genuineness. So the lesson here is start and continue your learning and improve your skills to reduce the risk of investing in forged or fake antique silverware collectibles.
