Be cautious of buying tarnished silver flatware through the internet. Pictures can be fake and conceal obvious wear, flaws or repair. Buying tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an affordable option, but looking at them closely for problems remains an important skill for your collecting hobby or business.

They can easily be substituted on hollow handle knives, A number of collectors favor 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 choice, but you do need to be aware 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. A silversmith is also skilled for replating silver flatware pieces. It can be an expensive project for common pieces, but it is fully worth the money spent to hire a qualified silversmith for restoring valued and rare silver flatware items.

7. Modified Items

Be aware that these exist and develop skills to check if a piece has been modified from its authentic condition. Common flatware pieces are sometimes changed to make them appear to be more unusual 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 pierced 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 fake pieces in favorite and rare patterns appear for sale regularly online. In particular:, salt spoons and scarce pieces such as asparagus servers. Several of these pieces have no maker's marks. Further, forged artist's markings in silver have been around centuries. The age of an antique silverware piece does not automatically indicate it's authenticity.
