Bought this item online. I will get it in a weeks time but are curious to what it may be as the posting did not say much. I am not certain what metal it may be but I have feeling it may be really badly tarnished silver or silver plated. Any ideas?

I suggest you wait until your receive it and then post pictures of any marks which you might find. Cleaning it would probably not go amiss. The discoloration looks like rust; if so even silver plate is unlikely.

This turned out to be made out of brass after some heavy cleaning.
