Re: Question on Silver Goblets and the Need for gilding or Not?

I suspect there is little in the wine that would leach out harmfull elements in the sterling or cause any damage to the silver. I would only suggest rinsing the goblets after use. I think it is a great idea to use the goblets for wine and anything else you may choose to use in them. Silver is to be used and enjoyed. Guilding is sometime used to plate the inside of the goblet though not necessary.
