Silver plating–old school quadruple plate…Never used: brightener, nickel, or copper. Anyone selling or representing otherwise would be misrepresenting or not knowing what they are talking about.
It takes as much as five times longer to produce a silverplate the old way and is very labor intensive. This is the reason most companies only brightener plate. We still produce most of our own plating salts and analyze our own solutions, so we can produce the old finishes. We silver, brass, bronze, copper, and gold plate also, in approximately 30 different finishes.
