The Occupation of the Silversmith

  • Silversmiths used metals like gold, silver, brass, and copper.

  • They melted these metals down and poured them into molds, and made things from swords to spoons.

  • They engraved their mark on these objects made by their hand such as an initial or their last name.

In the days of the 1700s, many people were worried about their money being stolen. So, in case this did happen, the people would go to the local smithy and have their money melted down into unattractive things such as spoons and doorknobs.
