Practice the following tips to guide your antique silver flatware collecting objectives.

1. Go for a silver flatware: Style, Historical Era or Craftsman.

Reflect upon your way-of-life and your own preferences, then make decisions that are a good match. Do you expect to use your antique silver flatware frequently, or instead use objects from your set for memorable occasions and holiday celebrations?

There are various specialty aspects of antique silver flatware collecting. Some collectors devote their attention to a special design pattern, while others collect a certain maker or historical period.

Some antique silverware collectors direct their attention on a distinct type of antique silver flatware, such as: butter dishes or candlesticks, while others have more diverse passions and broaden into regional silver flatware, such as Middle Eastern or Russian, or collectibles from specific artists, such as: Holmes & Edwards or Reed & Barton

2. Mash It Up

Take a risk, collect a variety of craft patterns.

This collecting technique provides outstanding aesthetic appeal to a table setting. This is a pleasant option especially with difficult-to-find, or rare silver flatware patterns. And will help for assembling a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Wear or Damage

Signs of use do not consequently reduce the value of antique silver flatware or silver plate flatware, while signs of damage may or may not. For example, minimal damage or defects on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lessen its value. The price of a tarnished collectible should be less than retail, of course. Be mindful of buying tarnished silver flatware via the internet. Pictures can be deceptive and disguise obvious wear, damage or repair. Purchasing tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but examining them closely for damage remains an important skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

Quite a few collectors view vintage, intricate monograms as a lost form of art and historically important. It does not diminish the desirability or worth of a silver flatware collectible when a monogram is present. Most pieces are, however, even more valuable without a monogram. As you gain more experience with antique silver and sterling silver flatware, you will be able to notice monogram removal. Monogram erasing can damage a piece of antique silver and drastically lower its value.

5. Authenticity

A number of collectors under value antique silverware pieces that have been refreshed, such as those with replacement knife blades. It is not uncommon for antique silverplate knife blades to show signs of wear and usage. They can easily be replaced on hollow handle knives, A few collectors favor to have them refitted with stainless steel blades. But, stainless steel was not introduced in flatware crafting until the early 1920s. This is one of those factors of collecting that can be a matter of personal choice, but you do need to be aware that your antique silver flatware may lessen in value if you replace the knife blades.

6. Repairs

Dents, or general types of damage can be repaired by a silversmith. Pieces can also be replated by a skilled silversmith. It can be an expensive project for common pieces, but it is fully worth the money spent to Put your valuable collectible in the hands of a competent silversmith.

7. Modified Items

Be aware that these exist and develop skills to check if a piece has been modified from its genuine condition. Common flatware pieces are sometimes altered to make them appear to be more uncommon and valuable pieces. For example, spoons are occasionally cut to look like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon may have been altered to resemble a sugar sifter. As your skills improve, look for signs of modification and avoid investing in those modified pieces.

8. Fake Antique Silver Flatware

New fake pieces in popular and rare patterns are available for sale regularly on the Internet. Examples include:, salt spoons and sought after pieces such as asparagus servers. Plenty of these pieces have no maker's markings. Moreover, forged maker's stamps in silver have persisted centuries. The age of an antique silverware piece does not really indicate it's genuineness. So learn as much as you can before investing in expensive antique silver flatware.
