How To Identify Your Flatware Pattern

Flatware could, arguably, one of the most used items in a household. From your everyday set of stainless flatware to a precious set of heirloom sterling silverware you might need to find a replacement piece or want to expand your set.

They have an extensive catalog of patterns for each maker with easily identifiable photographs. It is a bit of a process to search from page to page for your flatware, and you will find that they made many very similar patterns with only a few minor modifications.

We find that you can usually find a much better price-per-piece on eBay. I hope this article was helpful in assisting you to find your pattern.
