New Found Treasure?


Purchased this item today at a garage sale and have no idea of what it is. If I were to guess I would say a “Barrell Decanter” It appears to be silver. Grade unknown. Age unknown. Can anyone help? Just learned that my photos are to large to send. Sorry - If I had an email address I would send to whoever wants to see. Email me at Thanks, Ralph Swenson


Hi Ralph,
Thanks for joining us on
We really need a picture on the site, that way more people can see it and hopefully help. If you refer to the ‘how to photograph silver’ section it will explain how to resize your images for this site using a free program called Picasa. I would suggest adding a pic of teh entire piece and a close up pic of any marks present.
