    Wow can you believe what I found! Looks like it was exhibited at the 1889 world fair in Paris. Anyone know anything abou this? It says "paris" above the spigot, and the arch of the Eiffel Tower above that.

      Hi, It's difficult to actually make out the shape, and details of the item. Please would you take another photo or two, or three of it sitting all on its own? Also, why don't you take it outside, (find a very stable place for it), and take another photo in natural light. What is etched around the side? Can see most of the word Paris.

      It is a wonderful thing to have. Where did you find it? Wonder what was put in it? I don't think it would hold tea or coffee. Great find.

      It only let's me upload 4 pics. Its 26 inches tall. Says Paris across the front, and has the arch of the Eiffel tower above that. The Eiffel Tower was the entrance to the 1889 worlds fair. I got it Tuesday morning at goodwill for $6.00.

      You could delete a couple and replace them with new ones. Thanks for your reply.
