Gold plating

Wondered about gold plated items. The article did cover gold plating on copper. Have no idea what base metal my gold plated items have. Figure the coating must be pretty thick since everything is very old and heavily 'fondled'. The chess set for instance, if a thin layer, it would be gone or worn off after 25 years of handling daily. Same with a Tea set used, washed daily. Anyone know or are you also wondering about it since the price is now through the roof?
