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

1. Pick out a silver flatware: Style, Historical Period or Craftsman.

Picture your way-of-life and your own tastes, then try to make choices that are a good match. Do you expect to use your antique silver flatware daily, or only use items from your set for memorable occasions?

Antique silver flatware is a very broad collectible category comprising a variety of specialty areas. It can depend on the type of collector you are. For instance, some collectors focus on a distinctive pattern style, while others concentrate on a certain silverware craftsman or historical era

Some antique silverware collectors direct their attention on a distinctive genre of antique silver flatware, such as: ash trays or baskets, while others have more diverse interests and expand into regional silver flatware, such as Spanish or English, or pieces from specific makers, such as: Towie or Sheffield.

2. Mash It Up

Be bold with accumulating an array of silverware design patterns.

This collecting scheme adds excellent aesthetic elegance to a table setting. This is a beautiful option especially with difficult-to-find, or discontinued silver flatware patterns. And will help for putting together a set large enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Wear or Damage

Signs of use do not always lower the worth of antique silverware or sterling silver flatware, while actual damage may or may not. For example, slight damage or defects on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lower its value. The price of a damaged collectible should be significantly lower than retail, of course. Be cautious of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be misleading and conceal obvious wear, flaws or repair. Buying tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but reviewing them closely for problems remains an important skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

Many collectors view ancient, elaborate monograms as a lost form of art and historically important. It does not reduce the desirability or worth of a silver flatware piece when a monogram is present. Most pieces are, however, have more market worth without a monogram. As your knowledge increases with antique silver and sterling silver flatware, you will develop skills to detect if the monogram has been removed. Monogram removal can damage a piece of antique silver and markedly minimize its worth.

5. Authenticity

A number of collectors frown upon 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, Various collectors opt to have them replaced with stainless steel blades. 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 taste, but you do need to be mindful that your antique silver flatware may diminish in value if you modify 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. It can be an expensive project for common pieces, but it is fully fully worth the time and money to hire a competent silversmith for restoring valued and rare silver flatware items.

7. Modified Pieces

Be conscious that these exist and develop skills to detect if a piece is modified from its authentic state. Common flatware pieces are sometimes altered to make them appear to be more uncommon and valuable pieces. For example, you may find spoons that at some point in time were cut to look 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 fake pieces in sought after and rare pattern designs can be found for sale on a regular basis on the Internet. Examples include:, salt spoons and scarce pieces such as assorted knives, forks and spoons. Several of these items have no maker's stamps. Moreover, forged maker's markings in silver have persisted centuries. The age of an antique silverware piece does not always indicate it's authenticity. So learn as much as you can prior to investing in expensive antique silver flatware.
