    This is was passed on to me when I was a kid. I was told then that it was Antique and real silver but can't remember the purpose of it. Someone I know suggested a pie plate. The lid does come off and given that there are holes in the top, it could be used to cool a pie. Does anyone know or have any suggestions of what it might be or how old it is? I'm assuming it is old, 1800s (late) or early 1900s but am not sure. The person that gave it to me has since passed on. Thanks for your help!

      That green stuff is called verdigris, you only see it form on copper alloys........ That means its not sterling. You've got to show us the marks on the bottom if we're to tell you anything about it.

      Hi, I think it probable that the footed base is a vase and that the pierced lid is a flower frog. Very nice!!! Love it!
