Setting up WikiProject Silverware?
Would anyone be interested in helping to set up a WikiProject Silverware? I'm interested in salvers, coffee pots, jugs, candlesticks, famous silversmiths, different styles, etc. Thanks. Girlwithgreeneyes (talk) 11:28, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
is there anyone watching this page who knows anything (at all) about non-British silver hallmarks? I have something that needs identifying and it's baffling me. Giano (talk) 21:02, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
Is it ever not made of silver....at all?
Are any eating utensils such as forks, knives, spoons, etc called silverware but contain absolutely not silver, they are made of stainless steel for example. I'm thinking most "silverware" is. If the silver is this common and 92.5 silver and silver is worth $17 USD why aren't more people stealing them to sell? The snare (talk) 01:47, 7 February 2017 (UTC)
- What exactly, Mr Snare, is the question which you are failing so miserably to pose? Why would one refer to one's silverware as silverware if it were merely "stainless steel"? Do you think that a certain type of person may elevate their metallic eating utensils to "silverware" in order to impress their equally dubious neighbours? Do you really suppose that a Wikipedia editor would ever contemplate eating with anything less than a fork of 92.5 by weight of silver? I'm not sure I care for your tone at all.

- Her ladyship may be teasing. Almost all "silverware" in hotels and restaurants, and most in homes, is silver plate where it is not stainless steel. In silver plate retrieving the actual very small silver content is not an economic proposition, afaik. But they still get stolen, as any restaurant will tell you.

Why would anyone refer to something as silverware if it were stainless steel? Why would someone refer to a driveway that you park in instead and a parkway that you drive in instead? Think about it, don't take everything literally The snare (talk) 02:37, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
