I have an 8 oz. teapot is in a somewhat distressed state, and I was curious as to its worth. The bottom of the teapot says :

Fort Harrison
International Silver Co.
Silver Soldered
05002
8 oz.

There is also an "FH" emblem etched on the side.

Can you tell me roughly how much it might be worth?

Thank you!

Hi there Tami and thanks for joining us. Your pot is silver plated, not solid silver (sterling) so therefore it is of little commercial value. A sure way to tell that goods made by the American maker International are silver plated is the absence of the word "sterling" as part of the mark, as well as the item carrying the phrase "silver soldered".

Regards,

Uncle Vic
