I found this at a Goodwill for $8 and was drawn to the beauty of the glass which reminds me of Loetz. There are small impressions that look like apples which carries the theme of the apple tree base. The metal was black and I spent a day with Weiman polishing it up to reveal the silver with some goldish areas here and there that actually look good on the piece. The couple, one picking an apple from the tree and the other holding an apron full of apples, are so detailed. The ground the girl is standing on has fallen apples and a blossom, again nice detail. I am guessing it is silverplate but don't know for certain. The piece is 14 1/2" tall. It has an impressed mark on one of the rings on the base that is so small I almost missed it. Magnified it reveals a W 8 C or W & C or W & G in rectangle. Anyone recognize the maker? I have scoured the internet and can find no matches. Thank you for any help!
