A Beginner’s Guide To Selling Silver Entree Dishes

 

How We Can Help You Sell Your Silver Entree Dishes

Are you looking to find out what your silver entree dish is worth, and how best to sell them? At Mark Littler Ltd we can help you understand what affects the value of your silver entree dishes, provide you with a valuation, and advise on how best to sell them. 

Silver entree dishes have been made since the 18th century, and they usually come in pairs. Silver entree dishes were originally designed for the upper classes of society and whilst they are not often used for their original purpose, silver entree dishes are collected for their historical and decorative appeal.

With auction houses commonly charging a combined 49% commission between the buyer and the seller (18% seller, 25% buyer, 6% online fees), you need to think carefully about where you sell your silver entree dishes. Here at Mark Littler Ltd, we can provide a valuation of your silver entree dishes and advise on how best to sell them, be that through auction or private sale.

How do you sell your silver entree dish?

Are you looking to sell your silver entree dishes but don’t know where to start?  At Mark Littler LTD we make the selling process as simple as possible by handling all of the logistics, paperwork and fully insured shipping.

We can help you sell your silver entree dishes in two ways:

  1. Through a brokered private sale
  2. Through specialist online auctions

Our aim is to achieve the best possible price for your silver; after all, you can only sell once.  By giving you all of your options you can be sure you are making the right decision.

What Affects The Value Of Your Silver Entree Dishes?

Macallan Whisky Worth

Maker

The maker of your entree dishes, indicated by the maker’s mark, can have a great impact on the value. 

Silversmiths such as Paul Storr or Rundell, Bridge and Rundell command a premium due to their specialist knowledge and craftsmanship when making entree dishes. 

How to sell silver entree dish

Matching Marks

 As entree dishes come in pairs, it is important that the hallmarks match across the set.

 The lid and the base of the dish each have a line of hallmark stamps that must match, as well as one dish matching with the other. Any removable finials will also be marked and must match with the other pieces. 

Single entree dishes are not as commercial as pairs, and often only achieve a third of the value.

Condition

Clearly the condition of your entree dishes will have an impact on the value.

Dents, bruises and splits are all obvious forms of damage that will impact the value.

Quite often on entree dishes you may find that a coat of arms has been removed which can be hard to spot but will also have a big impact on the value.  

Do not worry about cleaning your entree dishes.  In some cases you can reduce the value of an entree dish by cleaning it.

Age

We have been applying hallmarks to silver since the 14th century and as such they are the oldest form of consumer protection in the world.  

Entree dishes have been made from around the 18th Century and the earlier pieces often command a higher price.  

However, the older the entree dish, the more likely that there will have been repairs over the years.  As such it is a combination of both the age and the condition that will have a real impact on the value of your entree dishes.

Silver or Plate

To put it bluntly, sterling silver items were made for the middle and upper classes.  Silver plate was an invention aimed at making ‘silver’ style items available to the masses.  

If you see the letters EPNS or A1 on your entree dishes then it is silver plated.  Your entree dishes will need to be hallmarked and carry very specific marks in order to be legally called silver.

As silver plate was made for the mass market many items of silver plate do not have any value.

Weight

The weight of your entree dishes will help us to understand the quality of your silver.  But how?

Silversmiths like Paul Storr produced many items to the same design, but depending on the wealth of their client they would adjust the amount of silver that they would use for the commission.

As such entree dishes may be 500g or it might be 1,300g.  Without being able to handle your items in person, providing the weight will give us a very good idea of the gauge of the silver used and thus we will be able to give you a very good idea of the value. 

How We Can Help You Sell Your Entree Dishes

Having bought a cask of whisky back in 2004 we decided that this year was the year to sell it. I approached three different brokers and it wasn't a... hard decision to ask Mark to arrange the sale for us. It wasn't only that he said he could achieve the best price for the cask but his professional manor and clear level of knowledge.To sales process was relatively simple with excellent communication throughout. He assisted us with drawing several bottles prior to sale and the logistics of moving the cask.Overall a first class service and if you are wondering he achieved slightly more than the suggested sale price. This was over three times what the first broker offered and 50% more than the second.read more

My wife bought me a hogshead of Bowmore for my 30th birthday. We’ve been happily paying warehouse rental for 25 years and decided we needed to look... into next steps. The warehouse wasn’t very helpful so I started to look on the internet for a whisky broker. There appeared to be a lot of choice but Marks credentials and website information stood out from the crowd. He immediately set me at ease and so I looked no further. I have enjoyed our interactions and have felt from the start that Mark had my best interests at heart with his professional approach, transparency and personal touch. He has kept me informed along the journey which has been an exciting one. As part of the service Mark facilitated the gauging, sampling and selling of the barrel and also coordinated for me to receive a few bottles of this amber nectar for my own consumption. To top it off he achieved a fabulous price. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is lucky enough to have whisky to sell. Many thanks for your service Mark!read more

During the last 12 months I have been actively making tentative enquiries to sell my whisky collection, which I had been collecting for more than 20... years. During this time I had been in discussions with various very well known whisky retailers online, with a view to them purchasing the bottles from me or finding prospective buyers. After many phone calls, emails and conversations, I was left feeling very frustrated and bewildered at their lack of communication in general and commitment to providing me with a service. That was until I discovered Mark Littler through an oline post that had been sent to me from a family member, which highlighted a high profile sale Mark had recently been engaged in. I decided to contact Mark the following day and within hours he had come straight back to me and offered to work with me to sell my collection. This was quite astonishing given the lack of communication that I had received from others. From the outset Mark has always been professional, courteous and friendly, which has made my own experience of using Mark's services an absolute pleasure. His individual care and approach to everything he undertakes on your behalf in providing you with a service is nothing short of exemplary. In no time at all Mark has already sold a much sought after vertical in my collection and I am delighted with the outcome. I would not hesitate in recommending Mark to anyone attempting to sell their own collection.read more

I got in touch with Mark having read one of his articles online. I was thinking of investing in a cask and had an offer from a company that shall... remain nameless. At this point I thought I should seek independent advice. Mark's professional and informative approach to my questions was excellent. He basically saved me from making a huge potential mistake investing with a company that were not throwing straight dice and trying to pitch sales based on false information. I may add that at this point Mark was not pitching any sale to myself, merely offering good, genuine and free advice.I later had the opportunity to use Mark as a consultant to invest in my first Cask. I have found him to be very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and friendly.I feel lucky to have sounded out Mark as a broker and hope to be using him again in the future. I can not recommend him and his team highly enough for their help and time!read more

Mark is a true professional and I have no hesitation in recommending his services. We had a variety of items which we wished to dispose of - from a... fine Christofle canteen of cutlery, some 1980s Swiss watches, to some precious stones and even a bottle of House Of Commons Whisky signed by Margaret Thatcher. I was amazed by how easily Mark found buyers for all these items at (what I consider) excellent prices. He kept us well informed with progress throughout the valuations and sales processes. Mark is very knowledgeable in where to get the best prices for a variety of items. A five star service indeed.read more

When we were unsure about how to go about selling part of our whisky collection, we looked online and found that Mark had some very good... reviews.

Well having now completed the process, I can say that Mark and his whole team are absolutely excellent. We were guided through different ways to sell different bottles. Help with packaging and transport is provided, and advice on bottle values was good.

They have now all been sold, and at very pleasing prices.

Highly recommended!

I bought my husband a hogshead of Bowmore for his 30th birthday. We’ve been happily paying warehouse rental for 25 years and decided we needed to... look into next steps. The warehouse wasn’t very helpful so we started to look on the internet for a whisky broker. There appeared to be a lot of choice but Marks credentials and website information stood out from the crowd. He immediately set us at ease and so we looked no further. We have enjoyed our interactions and have felt from the start that Mark had our best interests at heart with his professional approach, transparency and personal touch. He has kept us informed along the journey which has been an exciting one. As part of the service Mark facilitated the gauging, sampling and selling of the barrel and also coordinated for us to receive a few bottles of this amber nectar for our own consumption. To top it off he achieved a fabulous price. We would recommend Mark to anyone who is lucky enough to have whisky to sell. Many thanks for your service Mark!read more

I approached Mark Littler about selling my bottle of whisky. I delivered the bottle to their office and was very impressed with their setup. A price... was agreed and the contract was signed. It took about 4 months but a buyer was found and I was kept informed of how the sale was progressing, then on Christmas Eve I received an email saying the sale had been completed and the money was in my account.
I highly recommend Mark Littler if you have any unusual bottles to sell, they are the people to sell it for you.

I recently approached Mark Littler Ltd to value and sell a number of bottles of Whisky left to me by my late father.
Account Manager Hannah... Thompson completed the transaction faultlessly throughout. She was quick to establish which were the highly collectable bottles and which I would just have to enjoy drinking. I had a very good idea which bottles would fetch the best price and Hannah confirmed that for me. After putting the bottles to their database of clients, I soon had a best offer which stacked up against other vendors. On accepting the offer a courier delivered all the packing boxes the following day and we dropped everything packed to the post office. Hannah confirmed receipt and a couple of days later Mark called to confirm that he had just sent the proceeds to me - All very painless!
Many companies make a lot of promises these days but never quite deliver - Mark Littler is very much the exception!
