Silver coating for brass

(2001)

I have a brass candlestick which is the same pattern as a silver candlestick and I would like to have the brass one coated with a silver finish so the pair matches. Can this be done and if so, how?

This is pretty easy: you just get the brass one silver plated. Just remember that labor is involved, and don't expect a plating shop (with its high capital equipment costs and waste management requirements) to work cheaper than a plumber or mechanic :-)
