My wife has inherited a small silver salver with a shaped 'Chippendale' border, on three scroll feet. It has been dated as 1918 from Sheffield.

It was purchased in 1979 for 165 from an antique dealer and we would like to know how much we would be able to sell the item for, either to a private collector or to a dealer? I suspect there would be a significant difference in price between the two!

Please see photos below.

I hope someone can help.

Many thanks

Dave

Hi Dave and thanks for joining us. I'm no expert on English silver, but do have a English salver that looks identical to yours, although somewhat newer. What is the diameter and weight of your salver? Check the "completed items" on eBay and you might get a good idea of what similar English salvers are selling for.

Regards,

Uncle Vic

You won't see much profit on your investment I'm afraid. Based on eBay completed items I think you may get between 175 and 200 for your salver. I don't think there would be much advantage selling it privately rather than to a dealer. eBay is probably your best selling forum, but do offer it to a dealer first - you never know, you might get an offer you can't refuse.
