A key matter is the condition of a silver item and how much restoration work has taken place. When picking out silver antiques that are over 200 years old they will probably have what is called a 'patina' which is a combination of the colour and the wear. You cannot expect an old silver article to look like it just came from the workshop - if it does then it has almost certainly been significantly restored which is not the best thing for an item of antique silver. Remember that in the silver antiques world a little bit of restoration is okay where a small ding or dent may be meticulously taken out.

If you look after them well this pair of English silver champagne coolers will basically last forever.
