Hi there and thanks for joining us. Contact Jeff Herman, a silversmith in RI and he can do it or direct you to someone who can. www.hermansilver.com. Jeff is 100% reliable.

Replating is common and if done properly, results in a “like new” finish.

Uncle Vic

Thanks for your support Vic. I would have to say that not all plating must result in a shiny surface. The piece can be replated, patinated and hand finished with a softer antique look,
