2 Vases ~ Engraved with dates 1939 & 1941
I bought these 2 vases for $1.49 for a crafting project thinking that they were silverplated. They are 10" tall, and each weighs 7-1/2 ounces. Upon examining them I noted they are marked "International Sterling" with a kind of bird/phoenix symbol, and S27, but are not marked with "925" or the words "sterling silver". I have googled every combination of words I could think of, and haven't come up with anything.
My question is: Can these be sterling, or are they "silverplated"? I found some items that are described as sterling hollow ware....is this what I have?
