Whether you settle on collecting sterling or silver plate flatware, the following tips apply.

1. Select a silver flatware: Style, Historical Period or Artist.

Reflect upon your chosen lifestyle and your special tastes, then come up with decisions that will be a good fit. Do you expect to use your antique silver flatware almost every day, or instead use objects from your set for special occasions?

Antique silver flatware is a very broad collectible category including a great number of specialty areas. Some collectors focus their interest on a special design pattern, while others acquire a specific craftsman or historical period.

Some antique silverware collectors focus their interest on a special variety of antique silver flatware, such as: mustard pots or souvenir spoons, while others have more eclectic passions and broaden into regional silver flatware, such as French or German, or collectibles from specific craftsman, such as: Holmes & Edwards.

2. Mix It Up

Do not be afraid to mix and match patterns.

This collecting approach gives impressive aesthetic elegance to a table setting. This is a awesome option especially with hard-to-find, or rare silver flatware patterns. And is often a must for assembling a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Signs of Overuse or Damage

Signs of use do not always lessen the worth of antique silverware or sterling silver flatware, while signs of damage may or may not. For instance, small damage or flaws on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lessen its value. The price of a tarnished collectible should be much lower than retail, of course. Be cautious of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be deceptive and disguise apparent wear, flaws or repair. Acquiring tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but looking at them closely for problems remains a fundamental skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

Many collectors view classic, ornate monograms as a lost art form and historically relevant. It does not detract from the desirability or true worth of a silver flatware collectible when a monogram is present. Most pieces are, however, have more market worth 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 significantly reduce its worth.

5. Authenticity

A number of collectors frown upon antique silverware pieces that have been refreshed, such as those with replacement knife blades. Silverplated knife blades are often found with wear. They can easily be replaced on hollow handle knives, Certain collectors desire 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 aspects of collecting that can be a matter of personal choice, but you do need to be mindful that your antique silver flatware may decline in value if you switch the knife blades.

6. Repairs

A silversmith ought be sourced for any repairs required for damaged pieces. A silversmith is also skilled for replating silver flatware pieces. The cost can be prohibitive for more common items, but it is certainly worth it to restore rare antique silver flatware pieces. cut to appear to be like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon may have been pierced to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.

8. Forgeries

New forgeries in common and rare pattern designs appear for sale regularly online. Examples include:, butter dishes and rare pieces such as asparagus servers. Quite a few of these pieces have no maker's stamps. Further, forged artist's marks in silver have existed for hundreds of years. The age of an antique silverware piece does not automatically indicate it's authenticity. So learn as much as you can prior to investing in expensive antique silver flatware.
