What is Quadruple Silver Plating?
Silver plating became very popular in the 19th century, during the Aesthetic Movement. From England to the United States, beautiful silver sets, silverware, and holloware were commonly used at dinner parties. The silver industry was booming and the care of silver was top of mind for people to showcase their wealth. Heavily plating your silver items was the way it was done from the mid 1800s to the 20th century. Quadruple Silver Plating is not electroplating your item 4 times but using 4 times as much pure silver, better known in the industry as .925. This is the way it was done in the 1800s. And, since 1949, when our company was founded, we have also quadruple silverplated our customers family heirlooms. Our craftsmen quadruple silverplate the way is was done in the 1800s during the Aesthetic Movement.
