Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
Sheffield is a term for silver plating that originated in England. The term was also used on silver-color metal objects by some makers in the US.
Sheffield is not a term used on furniture styles. Perhaps the word you are thinking of is Sheraton or Chesterfield?
