Customer Question
The mark on a...

The mark on a Boardman Silver bowl and lid is : Silver by Boardman 8143. It's about 53 years old. What can you tell me about it and its current value. It was a wedding gift 53 years ago and has been in my attic for 50 years

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Other than it needs to be really cleaned. 50 years of tarnish
