A silver object that is to be sold commercially is, in most countries, stamped with one or more silver hallmarks indicating the purity of the silver, the mark of the manufacturer or silversmith, and other optional markings to indicate date of manufacture and additional information about the piece. In some countries, the testing of silver objects and marking of purity is controlled by a national assayer’s office.
Hallmarks are applied with a hammer and punch, a process that leaves sharp edges and spurs of metal. Therefore, hallmarking is generally done before the piece goes for its final polishing. The hallmark for sterling silver varies from nation to nation, often using distinctive historic symbols, although Dutch and UK Assay offices no longer strike their traditional hallmarks exclusively in their own territories and undertake assay in other countries using marks that are the same as those used domestically.

White Star Line’s reputation was always based on the quality of its service to its passengers, with this in mind it makes perfect sense that when choosing the silver service for its liners they would only buy the best. The silver services chosen not only had to do the service that would be expected of them at any top flight hotel on land, but all that and more with a life, a hard life, at sea.
White Star Line silver plate, and silver plate for any of the major shipping companies was always first rate, it had to be. We can now sail across the Atlantic with little incident and safely, barely realising we are even at sea, at the turn of the nineteenth century it was a different matter, a transatlantic crossing was literally the only way to cross, and without modern technology it could often be a bumpy ride.
As a result companies such as Elkington were employed to create not only beautiful silver plated creations for use within the ships dining saloons in a hotel type setting, but they had to cope with the riggers of the possibilities of being thrown around in an Atlantic storm, as well as the early machine dish washers of that era. To cope with this, ocean liner silver plate is always of a very thick and heavy gauge. As a direct result of this, silver plate survives in large numbers due to its amazing quality and construction to this day.
Any true piece of silver plate produced for White Star Line will be silver plated brass. Elkington also supplied nickel plate for 3rd Class, but again this would be on a solid brass body.
