Foreign Silver

Foreign silver can be found quite easily and be a challenge to find out about the item, very satisfying though when loose ends are tied up. Use forums for questions and answers.

American Arts & Crafts is one area to look for nice items reasonably priced.

Continental silver is also worth looking at and could make a nice varied collection.

Colonial and Cape silver are also very interesting fields to consider
