Use the following tips to assist your antique silver flatware collecting desires.

1. Make a decision on a silver flatware: Style, Historical Era or Maker.

Picture your lifestyle and your specific tastes, then come up with choices that will be a good match. Do you envisage using your antique silver flatware every day, or rather use pieces from your set for particular occasions?

Antique silver flatware is a very extensive collectible category comprising a great deal of specialty areas. It depends on the style of collector you are. For example, some collectors put emphasis on a special pattern style, while others focus on a certain silverware artist or historical era

Some antique sterling silverware collectors zero in on a special variety of antique silver flatware, such as: urns or jugs, while others have more eclectic interests and broaden into regional silver flatware, such as French or German, or collectibles from specific makers, such as: Alvin or Birks or Holmes & Edwards.

2. Mix It Up

Take a risk, acquire a good spectrum of craft patterns.

This collecting practice provides cool aesthetic appeal to a table setting. This is a pleasant choice particularly with hard-to-find, or discontinued silver flatware patterns. And is often a must for putting together a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Signs of Overuse or Damage

A history of overuse does not always lessen the value of antique silver flatware or silver plate flatware, while signs of damage may or may not. For example, moderate damage or blemishes on a rare flatware piece will not significantly reduce its value. The price of a tarnished piece should be markedly lower than retail, of course. Be wary of buying tarnished silver flatware on the internet. Pictures can be fake and hide obvious wear, flaws or repair. Acquiring tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an an alternative, but reviewing them closely for damage remains a key skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

However, stainless steel was not introduced in flatware manufacturing until the early 1920s. This is one of those aspects of collecting that can be a matter of personal choice, but you do need to be careful that your antique silver flatware may decline in value if you replace the knife blades.

6. Repair

Dents, or general types of damage can be repaired by a silversmith. Pieces can also be replated by a skilled silversmith. The cost can be costly for more common items, but it is definitely worthwhile to restore rare antique silver flatware pieces. cut to look like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon was altered to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.

Quite a few of these pieces have no maker's stamps. Moreover, forged artist's markings in silver have existed centuries.
