Gold flatware – Fineness of silver corresponding to the karat of gold. It is a measure of how much precious metal included in the silver cutlery. The higher the grade the more expensive. Inside, silver cutlery, there are two general categories: Thretowered : purity equal to 0.830 (i.e. 83% pure silver). Stamped with Copenhagen mark (three towers and the last two digits of the year).

A large part of all the silver and gold flatware that over time has been extracted has gone into making silver cutlery and other silverware. Silver cutlery will be produced to a lesser extent than before, but still represents a significant part of the total demand for the physical metal. Silverware and silver cutlery are available in various designs. Of the most famous brands in the category “three towers silver” include: Herregaard Silver, French Lily, Shared French Lily, Lotus, Double Plain, Ambrosius, Patricia, Frisenborg and Evald Nielsen.
The different kinds mean that it can be difficult to find the exact price on one’s silverware. It is therefore easier to calculate the weight and fineness, as it is universal sizes that add up to the price of physical silver and gold flatware.
