Holloware
Antique silver decorates todays’ homes
Antique silver holloware -whether it is sterling, coin, or silver plate continues to adorn our homes today. Now more than ever, antique silver trays, bowls, candlesticks and vases are being used in the most casual and formal settings as seen in decorating magazines such as Martha Stewart Magazine, Southern Living, Traditional Home and Architectural Digest. And if reproduction is the finest form of flattery, popular retail stores such as Pottery Barn and William Sonoma have embraced the antique silver, china and pottery “look” into their line of product offerings.

As inviting as these ‘repros’ can be, nothing can replace the real thing- the patina, craftsmanship, provenance, and of course value of an antique silver tea set, vase, bowl or water pitcher. Smart collectors know the inherent increasing value of antique silver holloware. There is no better time than now to invest in antique silver.

Silver holloware as a sign of wealth and prominence
It was a sign of wealth to own silver holloware from a prominent maker in the early time of American history. The wealthy put their well earned money into the form of holloware and flatware: tea sets, trays, bowls, water pitchers and centerpieces; as there were no formal banks in America as we know them today.

Most likely the pieces were hand engraved with the family name or monogram as a true identification of the owner of the silver. Tea sets, for example, were often made in stages. When the family accumulated enough money for the teapot – the silversmith made it for them. When there was enough money for the Coffee Pot – the silversmith made it for them. This is why there are different makers’ marks on a matching coffee and tea set.

Silver holloware is a timeless gift
Sterling silver holloware has a long history as the ultimate timeless gift to give for very special occasions for friends and family. Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, baby gifts, retirements, and special presentations; we can all celebrate with silver.
