Silberbesteck
Explanation:
A little more context would have been useful. I assume this appears in a will and refers to silver flatware, i.e. cutlery?

The commonly used German term is Silberbesteck (no plural, even though Ernst does give the plural, see below), not silbernes Essbesteck (which yielded only 2 hits, whereas Silberbesteck yielded around 570 hits).
