Silver Replating Pricing Guide for Hollowware
Hollowware includes tea and coffee services, pitchers, candelabras or any other piece that serves as a container. If your item falls into this category then chances are it is listed below.
Please examine your piece(s) and note the following special conditions that may apply to your item(s):
Pitted and corroded pieces – We may not be able to remove these blemishes entirely but we will do the best job possible. We can always make items look beautiful but we can’t always make them look like new. Occasionally we encounter a problem during the cleaning or plating process which prevents us from completing the work. Under these circumstances, we reserve the right to return your piece unfinished (at no charge).
Frosty Finish – If the base metal has a distinct “frosty” finish, we will do our best to preserve it. But if the “frosty” finish is faded, it will be removed during the plating process and a regular bright finish will be furnished.
Engraving – Ordinary engraving will show up just as well after plating. However, we cannot remove deep scratches, gouges or pits near the engraved or hand-tooled areas of the piece without removing the engraving, too.
Soldered Joints – If parts are to be soldered, the soldered area will show unless the piece is completely replated (except sterling). We recommend this to ensure the best job possible.
Glass, China, Enameled or Jeweled Prices – Are only accepted only at your own risk.
If you can’t find a price on our website, you may e-mail us a photo of your piece, send your piece to us for an estimate or call us at 713-784-7765. We cannot give prices over the phone without seeing the pieces.
