Sterling Silver Drip Plate


My client had a candelabra that was missing one drip plate.  I copied the existing ones by fabricating
the tube and concave plate (made by spinning) separately, then joined them together with silver-solder.
I made a mold of the decorative trim, cast it in low-temperature metal (basically pewter), soft-soldered
it to the sterling concave plate and then silver-plated it to match.

The middle drip plate of all the following pictures is the one I duplicated.  The reddish color was from
poor lighting.
