This collecting technique gives remarkable aesthetic appeal to a table setting. This is a pleasant option particularly with hard-to-find, or discontinued silver flatware patterns. And will benefit you for putting together a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Signs of Overuse or Damage

Signs of use do not necessarily lessen the value of antique silver flatware or silver plate flatware, while actual damage may or may not. For example, slight damage or flaws on a rare flatware piece will not significantly lessen its value. The price of a tarnished piece should be significantly lower than retail, of course. Be careful of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be fake and conceal apparent wear, damage or repair. Buying tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but reviewing them closely for wear remains an essential skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

A lot of collectors view traditional, detailed monograms as a lost art form and historically relevant. It does not lessen the desirability or valuation of a silver flatware piece when a monogram is displayed. Most pieces are, however, even more valuable without a monogram. As you expand your knowledge 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 significantly decrease its worth.

5. Authenticity

Some collectors frown upon antique silverware pieces that have been updated, 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 substituted on hollow handle knives, A number of collectors desire to have them replaced with stainless steel blades. But, 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 aware that your antique silver flatware may decline in value if you switch the knife blades.

6. Repair

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 worthwhile to utilize a skilled silversmith for restoring valued and rare silver flatware items.

7. Modified Pieces

Be advised that these exist and develop skills to check if a piece has been modified from its authentic state. Common flatware pieces are sometimes modified 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 was altered to resemble a sugar sifter. Look for signs that pieces have been modified and avoid purchasing them for your collection.

8. Fake Antique Silver Flatware

New forgeries in desired and rare patterns can be found for sale often on the Internet. In particular:, butter dishes and sought after pieces such as asparagus servers. Quite a few of these pieces have no maker's markings. Further, forged artist's stamps in silver have been around 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.
