I inherited this item and I am not really sure what it is. It is stamped Derby Silver Co.
Quadruple Plate
3 006
It stands about 5 1/2' high and looks like a cream pitcher but it is ornately engraved. Any ideas of history? Pattern? Where I can find more info?

    I think you're right that it is a silverplate creamer.

    This style silverplate was part of a set and dates from the very late 1800s.

    The Derby Silver Plate Company operated in Derby, CN, from about 1873 to 1898, when it was one of the original partners that formed the International Silver Company. Consolidated into Meriden in 1933.

    On this topic I always check out the "stein man":
    I like the Dutch ??? motif!
    But do windmills just mean Holland?
    Certainly not these days.
    Windmills were used throughout Europe and England too!
    It could well be syrup.
