Is Your Sterling Silver Worth Selling?
As a precious metal, silver has a set market value — so if you’re wondering if your silver is worth selling, the short answer is yes. At Samuelson’s, we buy sterling silver of all types and purities, including designer silver jewelry, silver coins and bullion, silver items like sterling silver tea sets, sterling silver flatware, and other antique silver items.
Silver Brands We Buy
From sterling silver tea sets to silverware, we buy a variety of silver items from brands including:
Reed & Barton
Since 1824 Reed & Barton has been one of the leading silversmiths in the world. Reed & Barton is currently located in Taunton, Massachusetts, once known as “Silver City” due to the large number of silversmiths in that area. Patterns we like to buy are “Classic Rose” & “Burgundy” among others.
Jensen is one of our favorite silversmiths. This Danish silversmith is known for creating acorn, beaded and blossom patterns as well as his exquisite craftsmanship and fine quality. We love seeing his iconic designs, whether it is an entire flatware service for 18, or a coffee & tea set.
Rooted in our hometown, Baltimore, Maryland, Steiff Silver started in 1892 by Charles Clinton Stieff. We’re proud to say that Steiff is known for their beautiful hand chasing & Repoussé work.
One of America’s oldest and most respected silversmiths, Towle, dates back to a small colonial silversmith in Massachusetts in 1690. Today, Towle is one of the world’s leading silver makers, known for their Candlelight and Country Manor patterns among others.
Wallace Silversmiths has been making silver since the mid 1800’s. Known for their iconic patterns like “Grande Baroque” and “French Regency” their fine craftsmanship is what sets them apart. We love buying Wallace flatware.
