Silver, back then. Prices???


#1

Hi all.

I am getting to like old silver items, pre 1870.

Today, its value comes from weight, style, rare and so one.

But, back then, say a straining spoon, what did it cost?
Or a butter dish? A well made fish serving knife and fork?

Really interesting to know what it did cost back then, how much money it was for one to buy something like these then.

Thanks
