Selling Antique Silver Spoons

We purchase many kinds of silverware and silver spoons are something many people regularly buy and sell. We will carry out our valuations in the comfort of your own home. We know about the current trends – and can spot a good item and pair it with the right dealer, or collector.

We have had the pleasure of being able to cultivate many relationships with traders and private collectors over the years to help provide you with the best deal. This is because a keen enthusiast is likely to pay more for your spoons, and is generally more reliable than waiting on a potential auction house attendee because the communication is direct.

    What Makes Antique Silver Spoons Appealing to Buyers?

    Silver is a malleable and versatile material with many standards and levels of fineness. This makes it useful for a wide variety of functional objects, including silver spoons and other antiques across many centuries.

    People enjoy silver spoons and will buy your old antique spoons for a variety of reasons. Collectors want them for their value and designers want them for their aesthetics. Other reasons people buy them include the following:

    • History: Whether a famous manufacturer or an interesting classical affiliation, an antique spoon tells a story. Some come from naval ships of historical note or may formerly belong to well-known families. This can make them fascinating archival objects with a unique past for many buyers.
    • Heritage and gifts: A silver set of spoons can make an amazing gift for a wedding or other celebration. Not only are they frequently ornate and beautiful, but they also hold their value. This is a key part of the appeal of spoons for a buyer and seller alike.
    • Functionality: Not only is a spoon inherently functional in itself, many people believe it makes food taste better. Silver also has natural anti-microbial properties, which means it was much safer to use before the days of refrigeration.

    Silver has a long history of use and a level of prestige that makes it an asset. Aside from the value of the material itself, silver spoons demonstrably have appealing characteristics for buyers of all kinds. As a result, you can be confident that your antique spoons will sell for a good price.

    People want to be sure that their valuations come from a knowledgeable and discerning expert. We are able to provide an authoritative assessment by drawing on our years of experience, carrying out specialist valuations in the comfort of your own home and allowing you the chance to agree or refuse the sale. In the event that you accept, we’ll make an immediate payment of however much your silver spoons are worth – based on market competitive prices associated with your specific items.

    Many families have pieces of silverware and other antique items that are of high value. They are not only valuable as a commodity but also from a heritage point of view.
