      thank you vetraio50! can you tell whether this is silver or not by the hallmarks?
    2. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      This is not English silver nor silver plate.

      I'd go for silver plate.

      vetry weir animal head in the middle.
      Looks like a kangaroo!
    3. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      Very weird animal head, sorry!
    4. vetraio50 vetraio50, 6 years ago
      I'd smell it!

      Can you tell the difference between silver and silver-plate by smell.

      Silver plate is quite distinctive ..... nickel!

      All these are too beautiful to scrap ho2....I would guess the fact that this piece is hallmarked at all means it's silver or why bother . You can find what the marks mean. I know the one letter is for the date. Then there's the assay mark, purity marks , sponsor marks etc. Should be lots of sites to help decode them.

      yes, i can tell silverplate by the smell. but this piece has NO smell whatsoever. the inside looks like silver.
    7. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      i just added a pic of the inside of the cap. it looks like silver to me.

      The bamboo handle wrap is interesting too. Obviously for insulation but it seems a bit of an anachronism!
    9. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      yes, racer4four, it is an odd piece. i imagine that the bamboo was so that nobody burned their fingers when the pot held hot liquid.

      Really does look silver for me!
      I was thinking Dutch, but the hallmarks doesn't match...

      Stunning jug I love the intricate work done on it

      The marks look more Far Eastern to me, but I'm terrible at marks, so take that observation for what it's worth. It's a pretty pot!
    14. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      thank you katherinescollections, Zowie, and kyratango!
    15. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      this polished up very nicely!
    16. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      here's some pics of this piece polished and a better shot of the bottom. you can see that the top letters are W & G.
    17. kyratango kyratango, 6 years ago
      Good job!
    18. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 6 years ago
      thank you kyratango. i'd love to hear if someone recognizes any of the marks on this piece. it's a mystery piece for me and i kind of think that it is some kind of silver and not plated, even though it's not marked 'Sterling'.
