Whether you think about collecting sterling or silver plate flatware, the following tips apply.

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

Reflect upon your lifestyle and your special preferences, then make decisions that will be a good fit. Do you plan to use your antique silver flatware every day, or instead use objects from your set for specific occasions and holiday celebrations?

There are various niche areas of antique silver flatware collecting. Some collectors center their attention on a single design pattern, while others acquire a certain maker or historical era.

Some antique silverware collectors target a particular kind of antique silver flatware, such as: dishes or coasters, while others have more eclectic interests and extend into regional silver flatware, such as Middle Eastern or Russian, or collectibles from specific makers, such as: Reed & Barton or Wallace.

2. Mix It Up

Do not be afraid to mix and match patterns.

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

3. Signs of Overuse or Damage

A history of overuse does not necessarily reduce the value of antique silverware or sterling silver flatware, while signs of damage may or may not. For example, negligible damage or blemishs on a rare flatware piece will not significantly reduce its value. The price of a damaged collectible will be lower than retail, of course. Be wary of buying tarnished silver flatware online. Pictures can be misleading and obscure obvious wear, flaws or repair. Investing in tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an an alternative, but looking at them closely for damage remains an essential skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

A lot of collectors view vintage, fancy monograms as a lost form of art and historically relevant. It does not decrease the desirability or merit of a silver flatware piece when a monogram is displayed. Most pieces are, however, have more value without a monogram. As you become more familiar with antique silver and sterling silver flatware, you will be able to determine if the monogram has been removed. Monogram removal can damage a piece of antique silver and drastically diminish its value.

5. Authenticity

Certain 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 replaced on hollow handle knives, so some collectors opt to have them refitted with stainless steel blades. However, 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 preference, but you do need to be alert that your antique silver flatware may diminish 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 fully worth the time and money to Put your valuable collectible in the hands of an expert silversmith.

7. Modified Items

Be advised that these exist and learn how to identify if a piece is modified from its authentic state. Common flatware pieces are sometimes changed to make them appear to be more rare and valuable pieces. For example, spoons are sometimes cut to appear to be like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon may have been changed 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 favorite and rare pattern designs appear for sale frequently on the Internet. Examples include:, salt spoons and scarce pieces such as assorted knives, forks and spoons. Quite a few of these items have no craftsman's stamps. Moreover, forged artist's markings in silver have existed centuries. The age of an antique silverware piece does not really indicate it's authenticity. So the lesson here is start and continue your learning and improve your skills to reduce the risk of investing in forged or fake antique silverware collectibles.
