Silver: The basic styles

Sometimes, one can determine so much just from the style of silver, sterling silver, silverplate and antique quadruple silver plate items.

The basic styles of silver are as follows:

- Empire style

- Gothic Revival style

- Rocco style

- Neoclassical style

- Japanese style

- Art Nouveau style

- Colonial Revival style

- Arts & Crafts Movement

and the Modern Art style

One of my up-coming newsletters about silver will feature a brief synopsis of each style.
