Hi all

Oh, yes, more questions.

A piece of silver, spoon, fork, bowl or tea pot, with a Crest engraved.
Was/is a Crest only used by large, rich and powerful people or Clans?

Will silver with a Crest be worth more?

All help is good.....I need it.

Thanks all

In general crests and engravings make silver less valuable although I'm sure there will always be exceptions. As to the class of people who would have crests, etc on their silver, I guess the simple answer is that anyone who could afford a full set of silverware would be wealthy enough to have some sort of armorial, or at least have monograms engraved on their silver.
