"Silverware" originally meant "eating utensils made from silver." (An "eating utensil" being a fork, spoon or knife). Now, all eating utensils are called "silverware" regardless of what materials they are made of!
REAL silver eating utensils are expensive. Usually you receive a set of real silverware as a wedding gift & you use the set for special occasions.

I still don't get why stainless steel (or worse, plastic) forks, spoons & knives are called "silverware" WHEN THEY ARE NOT MADE OF SILVER!
