Household silver or silverware (the silver, the plate) refers to
dishware, cutlery and other household items made of sterling,
Britannia or Sheffield plate silver.
The term is often used for the items made of silver, stainless
steel, or a silver-plated base metal. "Silverware" also refers
to dishes used for serving food and some decorative objects such
as candlesticks. Silver requires a good deal of care, as it
tarnishes and must be hand polished, since careless or machine
polishing ruins the patina and can completely erode the silver

In middle-income households the few items of silver or
silver-plate may be displayed on a buffet or in a cabinet or
china cabinet or breakfront, but a larger collection of
silver is usually locked away in a secure room or a special
The purchase and use of silverware, however, have been
steadily declining since World War II, perhaps because
families are to spend money on it and have neither the time
nor the servants to care for it. However, sterling silver is
still for sale and is still being collected and enjoyed by
those who can afford it.
