Hi everyone 1st post! I call this The holy grail of Goodwill. Yes. I found it there. No. I do not really need it. $Dukats? I do really need. I feel like I figured out most of it! But, I am questioning the artistic or antique value of the item. This is 21.51 troy oz. I'm looking at my notes from a year ago when I found this and silver was 21.05 in July of 2014. Now it's only 14.85! I should have sold then! Ha ha ha. Anyway, the marks are as follows: BLACK STARR & GORHAM STERLING 3408, & the lower mark is an musical instrument, I think is a Lyre, with the words: DUBLIN PATTERN. So, in my research I had decided this was 1904. There is a dent in the foot (see photo). But it's more of a bend/smash it's not hideous there's no damage to the surface. The item is fairly large, 9" wide and 5" high. So if the silver is worth $300-400, how much more is this piece worth? I actually love this thing. It looks like a big lotus flower to me and I can imagine a truly beautiful setting incorporating this. I am on ebay and etsy but I'm scared, to be honest, to sell this on ebay. I'm open to all thoughts on this New Silver Friends. Thank you for yours in advance.
