It's utter rubbish ... if I send you some postage, will you send it to me so I can recycle the metal?

To me it's right on the edge between Art Deco and Art Nouveau ... that semi-Egyptian wheat motif shows up in both, but the ruffled rim is more Nouveau.

Thanks Lindac
Lazygardens are you saying that this is just scrap metal
Thanks

I don't see any barrier to enjoying it even if it has no antique value. I say that to defend the fact that I have lots of cheap and tacky old things in my house :-) They scratch my antique itch without scarring my budget.

It's a pretty shape, nice motif. Display and enjoy, I'd say.

LaztGardens was kidding -- Did you check out the ebay link he posted?

I did, but noted the words 'sterling silver'. Maybe you're right, an unwise cup of coffee yesterday afternoon had me up at a silly hour.
