Sterling Silver Pitcher (No 925 950 835 800 coin spoon bowl fine round bar lot). Possibly be polished to mint condition. Faint, very faint scratches and patina. Approx 8.5 in height. Weight is Approx 965 grams about 1 oz shy of a kilo. A little over 2 lbs, this water/juice pitcher is NOT weighted. The pictures are part of the description. Feel free to ask, if any question come up, or if you would like specific angles of pictures, or what have you. Other times, far above spot.. There are deals to be had… Coin silver or sterling? An argument for coin silver 90% pure.. Acid tested, and guarenteed this pitcher is a minimum 90% pure silver. This pitcher is 2.5% away from being allowed to receive the stereo hyped overplayed sterling 925 qualification. Silver is very soft.. Sterling is an alloy.. A metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, especially to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion. “An alloy of nickel, bronze, and zinc”. If you had 100 grams of pure refined silver, the maximum amount of silver that you can replace with another metal, and still be considered “sterling”.. Is 7.75 grams… 100 grams – 7.75 grams = 92.5 grams or as often referred to as 925. The reason this aged pitcher, is in such amazing and, dare I say, immaculate condition, is because when the manufacturers built this pitcher, they resisted the “draw” of the “sterling hype”, and chose quality… The quality they selected, is the kind of that can only be proven by the actual longevity of an item, rather than following while “hype” sells easily to the masses,, the longevity of quality, surpasses hype in value… Longevity proves quality, quality proves character. This pitcher is NOT 92.5 % pure silver.. Any item with less than 92.5% pure silver in it, cannot be considered sterling. So what % of silver is this Pitcher? This Pitcher is 90% pure silver. Now, I know that 2.5% does not seem like a huge number… Because it isn’t… At least not huge when calculating the difference in total silver content. What is huge, is how much stronger a pitcher is that utilizes the full 10% of the silver strengthening metal. Sterling alloys compromise their longevity, by removing 2.5% of the very metals that give silver the needed strength to adhere to its crafted form… Sadly, when it comes to sterling, longevity of structural integrity, becomes a secondary objective, enduring quality takes a heavy blow… For that extra 2.5% difference in silver, it’s strength is compromised by 25%… When strength is replaced with softness. Coin silver = 90% silver 10% stronger metals. Sterling silver= 92.5% silver 7.75% stronger metal. Do you see what just happened? To gain that extra 2.5% silver, we lost 25% of our strengthening metals.. Coin silver 2.5 + 2.5 + 2.5 + 25=10 strong metal, 90% pure silver. Sterling replaces 1/4 (25%) of its strength. 2.5+2.5+2.5=7.75. Not a good trade. Don’t get me wrong, I like “sterling” as much as anyone else… But thats because I like silver. For my own personal wares, deco’s, or pretty much any alloyed silver, I prefer 90% – 80%… Yeah, I go down in purity, not up. I do the same in a sense with gold… 14k is the plumb standard… If I were going to place a high end stone in a ring… I would put it in 10k.. Perhaps, soft metals just have a way of losing their original integrity over time, and 14k loses more gems then 10k..
