Hi, does anybody have any experience in this kind of thing? There is a selection of them at my local antiques Centre and they are £28 each. Because the items for sale belong to people outside of the Centre (people hire cabinets to sell things from) the staff didn’t really know much about them, what materials they are made from etc. here is an example from google images of what I’m talking about

I love them regardless. Tibetan silver is well known but what purity it is I have no idea.

I’ve just been looking on eBay and they seem to be around £4.99 each and a full set £42.99 so I’m beginning to think it might be £28 for all 12. I’ll have to check it out again on Monday.

Some ebay listings show them as silver-copper-nickel-zinc alloy, so silver plated at best I think. If they're £5 each from China via ebay, it wouldn't surprise me if they're £28 each in an antiques centre.!

I think you’re right, I’ll have a feel tomorrow but I’ve got no way of knowing what’s in them. I’ll ask some more questions anyway maybe they can pass them onto the seller and find out

I'm. Sorry I am unable to help but what a beautiful thing even if it's not silver I will be keeping my eye out just to buy as a decorative item 

I really like them and I’m definitely heading back tomorrow to find out more
