Getting an item resilverplated

Has anyone had a favorite item resilverplated, where did you get it done and how much was it? Thanks, Richie

Nope....but I did price having my grandmother's ladle done...
think I will just keep it as is and say..."this is my grandmother's soup ladle. It's worn out but I keep it any way. Here use this Sterling one I bought for the same price as having this replated!"
Not quite that bad....but almost.

Thanks Linda. I just keep seeing fun stuff at the fleamarkets and shops that need to be replated and have wondered.

Yes. Price depends on what you're having done and where you are I guess. I know a great person in Ridgefield,CT who works on various metals but it can be costly.

I got it done in LA, and it wasn't all that expensive. Rose Tarlow, the high end decorator, buys cheapo silverplate and has the items re-plated in copper, which is way cool.

A lot of the old silverplate was copper under the silver....not much need to replate.....and plating with copper is lots less expensive than plating with silver.
There is also a process you can do at home which lays a very VERY thin coating of silver over the piece. The materials are expensive and it doesn't last long as the silver is so slight on the item...but for touching up a spot on an otherwise good piece it's not too bad...
And it also depends on what you call expensive.
