In 1742, when Thomas Boulsover, a Sheffield tableware maker (a delicate division of labor by silversmiths), was repairing silver knives for a customer by accident, It was found that after high temperature heating, silver and copper fuse tightly, and in effect, the two metals are combined into one. Moreover, the ductility of the metal after forging is actually the same. Possall repeated experiments and finally completed the silver plating process that combines silver and copper. Simply put, what he created is a composite metal material with a sandwich structure; The copper is sandwiched between the upper and lower pieces of silver, which are fused together by heating, and forged so that the material can be used for the production of silverware like Sterling silver. In this way, making a piece of Lao Xie silverware will save a lot of silver compared to traditional silverware. However, the time-consuming and labor-intensive process cannot be measured in money. **Specifications** Old British parts circa 1950s Sheffield Silver Plated Weight: 130 grams Height: 10.5 cm Width: 5.5*4 cm **Precautions** Antiques and old pieces have decades to hundreds of years of history.
