Silver plating, or silver electro plating, is the process of depositing a thin layer of silver on a base metal, such as copper or nickel.

This procedure was first developed in the 1830s and is now widely used due to its low cost and wide array of benefits

In this section you will also find Brittania Metal - which is generally thought to be the silver plating of sheet base metal - and then the manufacture of an object. This differs to silver plating - which is generally the manufacture of an object from base metal, and then silver plating a formed item.
