I have Silverware Passed Down to Me, What’s it Worth?

For decades, and maybe centuries, silver flatware sets, tea service sets, trays, and other sterling silver gifts were considered the ultimate wedding and anniversary gifts. These items were often handed down and considered treasures. Nowadays, these items are not so treasured or desired. Silver flatware needs to be polished (even when it is simply silver plated) or it looks dirty when it tarnishes and putting it in the dishwasher can end up tarnishing it even more. Who has time to polish sterling silver every time you want to use it? As time goes by, more and more of these items are handed down through the generations with one “lucky couple” having 3 or 4 complete sets of silverware to host 3 or 4 large dinners at once!

A Push For More Modern Silverware

People are entertaining in a more casual style and looking for convenience when hosting these gatherings. Stainless steel can look clean and shiny and require nothing more than a nice wash to look good at a fraction of the cost.
