I have purchased a piece of silverplate. It is quite a pleasing form- however, it's had some of its silver scratched off here and there.
I am told that there are means of easily electroplating silver in your spare time, in the privacy of your own home; I haven't found any indications of how to do this, though.
Does anyone have suggestions?
  • My godfather is an antiques dealer who just so happens to deal mostly in antique silver and silverplate. I believe he knows how to electroplate. If you like, I can give you his phone number, and perhaps he might be able to tell you.
    • I'd be interested, yes- or if he has a restoration specialist he uses, that'd be worth it too.
      I like the damn vase, and I'm finding that the silverplate is WAY too thin (just using the water-and-aluminium method of de-tarnishing it has wound up with several high points of the mold being de-silvered!)
      • My Godfather's number:

        Richard Knapp Antiques
        Richard Knapp (925) 254.6014 or (925)654.8931

        Just tell him Astra pointed you in his direction, and I'm sure he'd be happy to help you out.
