Does "silverware" only include dishes made of silver? Then is there "goldware" also?
Yes, that's correct. People use "silverware" and "goldware." More common ways to refer to cutlery and plates (not made of silver and gold) are "dinnerware" and "tableware." Ex: The family used their silverware only for special occasions. Ex: Can you take out the tableware and set the table?
