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

1. Have a preference for a silver flatware: Style, Historical Period or Maker.

Picture your lifestyle and your special preferences, then come up with decisions that will be a good match. Do you expect to use your antique silver flatware regularly, or rather use items from your set for particular occasions?

There are various specialized areas of antique silver flatware collecting. Some collectors direct their attention a distinctive design pattern, while others acquire a particular maker or historical era.

Some antique sterling silverware collectors target a single category of antique silver flatware, such as: urns or jugs, while others have more diverse interests and extend into regional silver flatware, such as French or German, or pieces from specific artists, such as: Towie or Sheffield WMF.

2. Mix It Up

Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns.

This collecting technique brings fantastic aesthetic charm to a table setting. This is a wonderful option particularly with difficult-to-find, or discontinued silver flatware patterns. And is often a must for assembling a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Wear or Damage

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

4. Monograms

Quite a few collectors view traditional, intricate monograms as a lost form of art and historically notable. It does not detract from the desirability or significance of a silver flatware collectible when a monogram is displayed. 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 monogram removal. Monogram removal can damage a piece of antique silver and markedly lessen its worth.

5. Authenticity

A number of collectors under estimate antique silverware pieces that have been restored, 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 repaired on hollow handle knives, so some collectors opt to have them replaced 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 preference, but you do need to be aware that your antique silver flatware may decline in value if you modify the knife blades.

6. Repair

A silversmith ought be sourced for any repairs required for damaged pieces. 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 a skilled silversmith.

7. Modified Items

Be advised that these exist and learn how to check if a piece has been modified from its original condition. Common flatware pieces are sometimes altered to make them appear to be more rare and valuable pieces. For example, you may find spoons that at some point in time were cut to appear to be like ice cream forks or a sugar spoon may have been altered to resemble a sugar sifter. As your knowledge expands, look for signs of modification and avoid buying those modified pieces.

8. Forgeries

New fake pieces in favorite and rare pattern designs are available for sale often on the Internet. Examples include:, salt spoons and scarce pieces such as assorted knives, forks and spoons. Quite a few of these pieces have no craftsman's marks. Moreover, forged artist's markings in silver have been around for hundreds of years. The age of an antique silverware piece does not really indicate it's authenticity. So learn as much as you can before investing in expensive antique silver flatware.
