PML Plating Ltd offer a high quality silver plating and refurbishment service to businesses, hotels and the general public In 1743 Thomas Boulsover of Sheffield accidentally discovered a method of plating copper with silver by fusing them together using heat, this is known as Old Sheffield Plate.
In 1840 John Wright of Birmingham discovered a process for plating a base metal with silver by a method of electrolysis.
This formula was sold to Messrs Elkington & Co of Birmingham who patented this. This was known as Electro-plating and took over from the fused plate method which had been used for nearly one hundred years.
