Hello, I just found this site, and it is very interesting. I would not say I am a silver collector, more of a metal collector. I like shiny metal, rusty metal, cast iron etc etc. I picked this item up at a sale because I liked the look of it. Trying to figure out what it is at this point. Its made by Gorham but I am not sure if its silver, silver plate or just nickle plated. Any suggestions on how to figure this out would be greatly appreciated. I like to be able to say when someone asks about something in my collections more than its a doohicky! Otherwise people might think I am just an oversized packrat collecting shinies (which I probably am). If anyone has a guess on an estimated value would be great but not necassary, I did not pay a large amount for it but its always nice to know I did’nt get snookered to badly.
