Silver…practical, stylish, and classic…only a few of the calibre you’ll see in this platinum. I totally adore using and decorating with silver…be it sterling or silver plate. Any visit to Houzz immediately guarantees me I.
Some fast details about silver: gold is in fact an alloy of silver. It’s constituted of 92.5% (by weight) of silver and 7.5% (by weight) of other metals, usually copper. Excellent silver, which is 99.9 pure, is considered too delicate to make useful items for regular use, therefore, the demand to contain an alloy-like copper for extra strength. One method to generally check in case an item is in fact sterling silver would be to locate the term, 925 or the mark “sterling” someplace around the piece.
The accurate heyday of silver was throughout the 50-yr period from 1870 to 1920. Picture this…there were so many flatware lines released in this time, it wasn’t uncommon for dinner to contain 10 or even more classes, beginning using a soup course and progressing into a salad course, a fresh fruit course, a cheese program, an antipasto program, a fish course, the entree as well as a pastry or dessert program. Wow! I will have to waddle from the table, in other words, if I really could stand up! 😉
We might not be appreciating 10 course meals today, however do not let that stop you from including a bit of elegance and tradition in to your decor. Here are a few wonderful examples to get you began:
