Whether you choose to sterling or silver plate flatware, the following tips apply.

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

Think about your way-of-life and your specific preferences, then arrive at choices that are a good match. Do you envisage using your antique silver flatware regularly, or only use items from your collection for special occasions?

There are a large number of niche aspects of antique silver flatware collecting. It can depend on the style of collector you are. For example, some collectors concentrate on a certain pattern style, while others center their attention on a certain silverware manufacture or historical era

Some antique silverware collectors center their attention on a single category of antique silver flatware, such as: cups or goblets, while others have more eclectic passions and expand into regional silver flatware, such as Asian or Canadian, or collectibles from specific makers, such as: Alvin or Birks or Tiffany.

2. Mix-n-Match

Do not be afraid to mix and match patterns.

This collecting tip brings great aesthetic elegance to a table setting. This is a attractive option particularly with hard-to-find, or discontinued silver flatware patterns. And will help for putting together a set big enough for entertaining your family, friends or guests.

3. Wear or Damage

A history of overuse does not always lessen the worth of antique silver flatware or silver plate flatware, while signs of abuse may or may not. For instance, minor damage or flaws on a rare flatware piece will not significantly diminish its value. The price of a tarnished piece should be significantly lower than retail, of course. Be wary of buying tarnished silver flatware online. Pictures can be fake and conceal obvious wear, flaws or repair. Acquiring tarnished pieces at estate sales and flea markets may be an an alternative, but looking at them closely for problems remains a key skill for your collecting hobby or business.

4. Monograms

Quite a few collectors view classic, ornate monograms as a lost art form and historically relevant. It does not lessen the desirability or true worth of a silver flatware piece when a monogram is present. Most pieces are, however, even more valuable without a monogram. As you gain more experience 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 dramatically lower its price.

5. Authenticity

Some collectors under estimate antique silverware pieces that have been refreshed, such as those with replacement knife blades. Silverplated knife blades are often found with wear. They can easily be replaced on hollow handle knives, A few collectors opt to have them replaced with stainless steel blades. However, 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 worth the money spent to Put your valuable collectible in the hands of a competent silversmith.

7. Modified Pieces

Be conscious that these exist and develop skills to check if a piece is modified from its original 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 resemble 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. Fake Antique Silver Flatware

New fake pieces in favorite and rare patterns can be found for sale frequently online. In particular:, salt spoons and rare pieces such as asparagus servers. Plenty of these items have no maker's marks. Further, forged maker's marks in silver have persisted centuries. The age of an antique silverware piece does not necessarily indicate it's genuineness. So learn as much as you can prior to investing in expensive antique silver flatware.
