SILVER PLATED WARE.
D McKown respectfully announces to the people •
H Wyoming County, that he has made a specialty of
ofEAVY SILVER PLATING, lor years. Heavy
plaiting is muck more economical than light. The
more Silver put on the goods, the cheaper it is done
in proportion to the amount of Sliver need. Spoons
and Forks, should not be of less than 16 01 plate—
-36 or 48 oz. would be far more economical. Yet
4oz plate is called a good plate by the trade * and.
poor as it is, but a small portion of all the goods
mode come up to this standard. "Ounce plate," in
platers language means the number of ounces of
silver, to the gross of table spoons. All other sur
faces are estimated by these. For example, des
serts are estimated at 3-4 ; and tea spoons at 1-2 the
surface of table-spoons. Sixteen oz. plate is 16 ozs.
of fine silver to the gross of table-spoons or dining
forks, 12 oz. to the gross of dessert spoons or forks
and 8 oz- to the gross of tea-spoons, This quality
of plate will cost, on the azerage, twice as much as
4 oz and wQt have four times tbe amount of stiver
on It. Thirty-six plate will cost about three
time 9as much as 4oz , and will contain nice times
the amount of silver on it. Thirty-six oz- plate is
tho lightest that will allow the engraving on it, of
name or initials, without cuttiDg through unto the
metal beneath. Forty-eight oz plate will cost about
four times as much as 4oz plate, and will contain
12 times the amount of silver. This plate costs
about one-half as much as solid silverware of ordi
dinary weight, and for every day use will be more
durable thaD light, solid silverware Most ot the
solid silverware is made much too light to be dura
ble in constant use. The terms "double." "treble"
Ac. Ido not use to designate qualities—there being
too much ambiguity in their use.
All goods, made by me, having my name and fig
ures denoting the oz, plate, stamped on them, will
be guaranteed full weight of silver on first quality
