Sterling Silver Tableware


Tableware are the dishes or dishware used for setting a table, serving food, and dining. It includes cutlery, serving dishes and other useful items for practical as well as decorative purposes.

For hundreds of years, these items have been made of silver for not only their beauty, but also for preserving the sterility of the food or drink... silver is a non-staining, non-porous surface that will not absorb content or microbials.

Sterling silver was the most popular metal choice in the past times, but as the price of silver has gone up, manufacturers started using silver plate. Silver plate means that it is made of a base metal with a thin layer of silver over the top. This provides the same beautiful finish and safety properties, but at a lower cost.

You may be surprised to find out that many of those items that are around you house can possibly be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars in intrinsic metal value, let alone possible collector's value based upon age, manufacturer, and desirability.
