For Your Information
We want to share with you a brief history of silver plating. We hope that it will be helpful to you and serve as additional information.
In 1743, Thomas Boulsover, who is from Sheffield’s Cutlers Company, tried to repair the decorative knife handle of his customer. On to intense heat, this silver melted and noticed how the copper and silver combined firmly. These two metals worked as one when Boulsover reshaped them. This is how he accidentally discovered the copper plating method with silver which is called Old Sheffield Plate.
In 1840, John Wright from Birmingham was the one who discovered the base metal plating process with silver. This method used electrolysis which was done with electricity. He read Carl Wilhelm Scheele’s article regarding how silver and gold cyanide react in a potassium cyanide solution. This is what he devised to assess a particular solution, just like an electrolyte.
