An Introduction to Silver: the Vocabulary, the Marks, the Styles & an Appraisal Opportunity

March 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Presented by Amelia Jeffers, Garth’s Auctions

In celebration of the generous gift of an early 20th century sterling silver tea service by Jean Cameron Sankey, the Kelton House will host “An Introduction to Silver: the Vocabulary, the Marks, the Styles.”

Amelia Jeffers is owner of Garth’s Auctions, Deleware, Ohio. Ms. Jefferes will guide attendees through the sometimes confusing world of silver. What is coin silver, is sterling silver pure silver, what is chasing and repousse? What metals, in addition to silver, make up silver flatware and hollowware? What do the various marks mean? How have silver styles changed over decades?

Ms Jeffers will offer verbal appraisals of silver pieces brought by the attendees/
