I am very confused over silver plate/epns et al. I look on flea bay and it seems to cost next to nothing or quite a bit. I collect solid silver spoons mainly because I like them but they also have a natural value ( Ido understand collecting for profit is a mug’s game, and I do not collect in this fashion).
So my question is is plate worth the house room, and what should I look for in terms of makers , process etc. and will it ever be anything other than the joy of looking at it.
I ask this because I am disabled and money is tight so have to buy,what i can when I can.
Am I better off sticking to my spoons or looking at some plate
