Collecting Antique silver can be a hugely rewarding hobby. Three are some wonderful pieces available and if you learn a little about the subject then you can even pick up some bargains.
It is important, especially when you’re beginning your collection to be very careful what you’re buying. It’s probably best to stick to reputable dealers and other collectors initially – sites like these have experts who are always willing to answer questions and help people with advice. However internet sites aren’t the only solution, it is also important to handle silver and learn to identify different marks and get to know how ‘good’ silver feels. Unfortunately there is a lot of cheap and imitation products being passed off to the unwary buyer – so be careful especially if you’re paying a lot of money for a piece of silver.
