Customer Question

Hi Frank, A caterer wants to buy my Wallace Grand Baroque sterling. I have 24/7 piece place setting and 10 serving pieces. I am trying to get a clear idea what it is worth as flatware & silver by weight. They are in excellent condition and only half of the settings have seen use. Thanks, Jane

Hi Jane.

Do you have a weight on the silver pieces minus the steel blade knives?

Also can you tell me what serving pieces you have in the set?



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
89.2 grams for dinner knives. 49.7 grams for butter knives. 2 serving spoons, 1 pierced serving spoon, sugar spoon, ladle, cake server, meat fork, pickle fork, butter knife. Each place setting includes knife, butter spreader, fork, salad fork, cocktail fork, spoon & soup spoon X 24.

I would just need one weight for the rest of those items without the knives to give you the scrap value for the set

Those knives a scrapper is going to offer between 6-8USD per knife.

Thanks again,

Happy Halloween,
