It used to be part of almost every banquet. Even on birthdays, Christmas or Easter it was dug out of the drawers, maybe polished again with a cloth, and then neatly draped on the table. It is still part of the standard repertoire in upscale restaurants today.

We're talking about silver cutlery. The darned pandemic not only makes restaurant visits impossible, larger family celebrations are also often canceled. But stainless steel cutlery is not only cheaper, it is also easier to look after. Many families have now also banned silver from the dining table. The fine silverware in these households ekes out a sad existence in dark boxes, in the attic or in the basement. It is often only when you move or inherit that you notice that it is still there. Real silver cutlery, especially as a complete set, can often be worth a lot of money.

The value of the silverware collection depends primarily on how much pure silver was used in its manufacture. From a purely visual point of view, it is usually difficult for laypeople to distinguish high-quality cutlery from inferior, only superficially silver-plated industrial products, which are often referred to as hotel silver. A better indication is the weight. The rule of thumb here is: the heavier the fork or knife, the more likely it is that the silver content is high.

Nevertheless, there are different quality levels even with high-quality table cutlery. Consumers should know: The purity of silver is given in thousandths. The best known historically is 925 silver, often also called sterling silver. The number 925 indicates that 92.5 percent of the metal consists of pure silver. Other common alloys are 800, 835 or 935. The lower the number, the less silver the cutlery contains. Silver-plated cheap goods usually only account for ten percent.

The kitchen scales can help

These numbers, technically called hallmarks, are usually engraved on the handle or on the shaft. In this way, owners can relatively easily determine the value of the material at least approximately with the help of kitchen scales, for example: the weight of the cutlery times the silver content in percent. But be careful - the value of the material depends on the current silver price, and this sometimes fluctuates very strongly.

Ralf Scherfling, precious metal expert at the North Rhine-Westphalia consumer center, says: "Consumers should be clear that they do not get the full material value in practice". That is simply because the buyers also want to earn something.

In addition, the prices offered by precious metal dealers, jewelers or antique dealers would differ enormously in some cases. Scherfling therefore strongly recommends that customers contact several dealers and negotiate with them.

In exceptional cases, silverware can also achieve a higher sales price than the pure material value. This applies to particularly old and rare collector's items from well-known manufacturers such as Bruckmann & Söhne, Robbe & Berking and Auerhahn. In such cases, says Scherfling, selling through an (online) auction can be worthwhile. Or you can have the silverware valued by a professional appraiser in advance. The catch: this service costs extra.
