    1. He has much more than common sense. One of the differences between me and him is that I never expressed an interest to invest in antique silver when I was 12 years old.

  2. Me too, but I do like it to be cared for and not tarnished.

  3. I always wonder how to treat silvr. Often on antiques programmes we are told that items have been over polished - and yet silver does become tarnished if not cleaned regularly. Where do you stand on this Tom?

    1. Silver and brass should always be polished and not tarnished, unless it is over 500 years old. Most 18th century brassware was silver-coated and the silver has worn off through polishing. To my mind it is also acceptable to re-coat these things in silver plate, and if you have a pair of solid silver candlesticks which are black, then you are not caring for them. Archeologists would disagree, but most people are not archeologists.

    1. I almost bought that 18th century silver cup. There is a man here who deals in antique silver. Apparently he is one of the antiques road show lot.

  7. My collection of silver frames are stored away until we finally move at the end of the year.
    I will have to give them a good polish (black mucky hands) but I have really missed the photos that they contain.
