the value of Edwardian silver tea services has fallen in the UK, you can get about 8.50 an Oz, so if you weight the tea set and times by the silver price per oz you will get the approximate value, If is of any help, I have seen sets like yours go through the Uk auctions for around 80 - 180
4 or 5 years ago they were selling for 250 -400
Silver tea services in the UK are just not fashionable at the moment

i knew what it was worth for scrap silver, i wanting to know the sale value?
I have my own website selling antiques and collectables, this isn't something i usually have which is why i am not too sure on the price.

well what I was trying to tell you is currently its value in the UK market is scrap value, they do not make above scrap unless they are special in some way, yours is a very Standard silver tea set and is only worth scrap, this would be trade to trade
If you have a shop and are retailing then mark it up with your normal % profit on what you paid most traders add 30 -50% on top of what they have paid. But thats up to you, I said earlier they sell through the Auction house for around 80- 180, I would try to sell it at around the 200 to 300 mark

I live very close to Birmingham and Birmingham silver tea sets come on the market alot
Victorian and earlier are much more desirable than Edwardian.
