I have a beautiful Mauser sterling silver dish and was wondering what it would be worth,
It was made around 1887 to 1903 I think.
This is the info that came with it when i purchased it
This is a lovely sterling silver serving piece,a timeless and beautiful floral repousse pattern of florals and leaves,the center has initials A.H.K.I think this may be referred to as a bon bon dish or nut bowl,I am not absolutely sure,the condition is excellent,i did polish it up,and as you see it came out beautifully.The dish measures 7 1/4 x 5 7/8ths,several hallmarks on the back, After doing some research one of the hallmarks ,a unicorn ,i discovered that this is the mark of the Mauser silver company, also marked on the back sterling silver ,I have photographed all other hallmarks
Ive been told that the price of silver is going to go higher and higher in the coming months and I wonder if I was ever to sell an antique piece like this would it just get melted down?
I look forward to any feedback anyone can give me
