Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am pleased to help. You have silverplate as manufactured by BIRMINGHAM SILVER CO INC - Brooklyn, NY and later Yalesville, CT circa 1930s to the late 1950s era. The windmill is one of several trade stamps they used after around 1932. As such, the retail value isn't a great deal--in most markets, if the piece is near flawless, the retail is from $75 to $125. Hope this helps!
