Hello, I'm decluttering my house at the moment and I came across this chamberstick my grandmother left me. I'm wondering if it is worth anything?
It has a circular disk shape on the base of the chamberstick which has:
L

EPBM

It is lacking it's snuffer
Can anyone tell me anything about it?
Thanks,
Susan

Electroplate is not generally worth very much. A chamber stick may be worth something just into the double figure (pounds) area, but it depends very much on the state of the plating. Any plating loss will seriously reduce its value.
