I have recently acquired a wonderful 5 1/2" tall creamer/pitcher from “E. CAROLINA SILVER CO.” The stamp on the bottom says:
E. CAROLINA SILVER CO.
(THEIR SIGNATURE PALMETTO TREE)
There is a ring of gold beads around the base. The pitcher is in VERY NICE condition. It has beautiful patina! The inside is perfectly clean.
There are some small dents around the bottom and the lid doesn’t close perfectly.
I understand they were only in business between 1905 - 1907 and any pieces from them might be quite rare.
My questions are: Are pieces desirable to collectors? If so what is the value? Or how would I go about determining value? Where might be the best place to inquire about selling?
Any information or history would be greatly appreciated!
