A refinement of the electroplating process in which silver-plated articles are reproduced from moulds. A mould is used as one of the electrodes in an electroplating vat, and by electrolysis is lined - more thickly than in straightforward electroplating - with the silver. The mould is then freed to leave a hollow shell in the shape of the finished a …...
