silver teapot...treasure or trash?? HELP!!

The previous owner of a house I purchased left a tremendous amount of his “stuff” behind, including this teapot. I have no clue as to whether it is treasure or trash and I do not know where to take it to be tested/appraised. It still needs more polishing but otherwise it is in great condition. There is writing in Arabic on the bottom of the teapot. There is also what appears to be a Turkish coffee set with a tray, pot and 6 cups and a large heavy satin white tablecloth with an embroidered menorah. If that helps identify the origin. Can anyone give me some information please!

Thank you for your help.


I don’t have any answers for you, but the item is gorgeous. I would keep it for this fact alone. Do you have any antique shops, or maybe an actual international market new you? Someone might be able to read the Arabic which would point you in some kind of direction.
