Sterling Silver Glossary:Sheffield Plate

Sheffield Plate:True Sheffield plate was produced by fusing, with intense heat, a thin sheet of silver to one or both sides of a thick sheet of copper. The composite metal was then rolled down to the proper thickness for fabrication. Invented by Thomas Boulsover about 1743. Frequently called "old Sheffield Plate" to distinguish it from electroplate.
