Expert Eye: Silver
March 19, 2018 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Every object has a hidden story. The marks on the base of piece of silver can indicate its age, maker and origin. Join the Historical Society of Princeton and experts from Rago Arts and Auctions at the Updike Farmstead in Princeton, NJ to explore what we can learn by taking a closer look at silver, and exploring the differences between silver, silver plate and Sheffield plate.
Participants will have the exclusive opportunity to carefully handle items from HSP’s collection, including some belonging to Grover Cleveland’s family. Guests are also invited to bring their own silver pieces for identification and valuation following the talk (appointments required).
Attendance is free for HSP members. $5 for non-members.
