Hello - I have a 47 piece of silver cutlery set - all the pieces other than the knifes are marked “SILVER” at the back. There is no other marking on the set. Some of the pieces have also got tarnished which makes me think they are actually silver.
I got this set as a gift from someone in America.
Can someone please help identify if this mark means these pieces are solid sterling silver or silver plated or not silver at all?
I am sorry I cannot load photos of them as the mark is very small and I cannot capture it on my camera.
Thanks for your help
