The Contemporary or Modern anniversary list states the gift theme for the 16th year wedding anniversary is Silver Hollowware. The term Silver Hollowware can be a difficult one to define nowadays it used to mean items made from silver that are hollow; nowadays it can also cover items that are silver plated thus not necessarily completely made from silver. Silver plated ornaments and sculptures would most likely fall into this category as does most silver cutlery sets.
