    This looks and feels like silver, very heavy..I tried taking details but it may still not be clear enough to recognize. it is ~10-12" long
    The second pic stamp/marking looks familiar (I had seen it while researching something else while back) but not sure who could be the maker, the age, and possible value...
    Thanks for your help!

      When I can't find a mark I sometimes sniff the item, silver smells sweet, plated smells like sulfur. I occasionally taste to test silver too (if nobody is looking). Silly I know but works for me.

      I did use your method MattyG ( except my husband watch me sniff lol), but still in dark...not good nose for silver I guess :)
      Thanks!
