Silver, back then. Prices???

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.
