Candelabra, silver plate, worth re-plating?

This candelabra is in bad shape. It needs to be re-plated. I happen to like the piece, but not sure if it’s worth it. Under the base it says, “Silver Plate” and the letters LB.

Thank you for your help,

Replating properly would involve stripping the candelabra down to a smooth surface and would probably be quite costly - certainly more than it would be worth.


Thank you Phil. Once again you come through. :+1:
And I had a feeling it would not be worth the trouble and expense of replating.
