I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'last chance' is the definition.
'final' can be an answer for 'last' (I've seen this before). I am not certain of the 'chance' bit.

'piece of silverware?' is the wordplay.

(Other definitions for final that I've seen before include "Conclusive" , "big match" , "binding" , "Not to be altered" , "Last, ultimate" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
