When introduced two hundred and fifty years ago, Sheffield Plate offered consumers a more affordable alternative to sterling silver. At first glance, sterling silver and Sheffield Plate may look identical since Sheffield is plated with sterling. Unlike sterling, which is hammered or rolled from an ingot of silver blended with other metal alloys, Sheffield Plate consists of a sheet of silver, about 1/8 inch thick, fused on top of an ingot of copper, which is then flattened to a malleable sheet of metal; in this state, the two metals act as one, expanding in unison.
