3. Wear or Damage

Signs of use do not automatically reduce the value of antique silverware or sterling silver flatware, while signs of abuse may or may not. For instance, minor damage or blemishs 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 careful of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be fake and conceal obvious wear, flaws or repair.

But, stainless steel was not introduced in flatware manufacturing until the early 1920s. This is one of those sides of collecting that can be a matter of personal choice, but you do need to be aware 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. Pieces can also be replated by a skilled silversmith or hammersmith. The cost can be costly for more common items, but it is totally worth it to restore rare antique silver flatware pieces. cut to look like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon has been pierced to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.
