1. Go for a silver flatware: Style, Historical Era or Maker.

For instance, minor damage or blemishes on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lessen its value. The price of a damaged piece should be significantly lower than retail, of course. Be wary of buying tarnished silver flatware online. Pictures can be misleading and obscure obvious wear, damage or repair. Acquiring tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an an alternative, but investigating them closely for problems remains a fundamental skill for your collecting hobby or business.

A lot of collectors view traditional, fancy monograms as a lost art form and historically notable. It does not decrease the desirability or market value 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 determine if the monogram has been removed. Monogram erasing can damage a piece of antique silver and considerably lessen its worth.

They can easily be replaced on hollow handle knives, A number of collectors favor to have them refitted with stainless steel blades. 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 taste, but you do need to be careful that your antique silver flatware may go down in value if you modify 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. It can be an expensive project for common pieces, but it is fully fully worth the time and money to engage a competent silversmith for restoring valued and rare silver flatware items.

7. Modified Items

Be mindful that these exist and learn how to check if a piece has been modified from its original state. Common flatware pieces are sometimes restored to make them appear to be more scarce and valuable pieces. For example, spoons are occasionally cut to resemble ice cream forks or a sugar spoon was pierced to resemble a sugar sifter. As your skills improve, look for signs of modification and avoid buying those modified pieces.

8. Forgeries

New forgeries in in demand and rare pattern designs appear for sale on a regular basis online. Examples include:, butter dishes and rare pieces such as assorted knives, forks and spoons. Many of these items have no craftsman's markings. Moreover, forged artist's marks in silver have persisted for hundreds of years. The age of an antique silverware piece does not really indicate it's genuineness. 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.
