Hello,My name isCustomerand I would love to help. There were no pictures that came with your question.Please use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures of the item and any marks, labels or writing.
Thank you. I got one photo of the overall piece and I do know what it is.
To be more accurate, I'd like to know what the marks are on the underside of the metal frame.
There should be marks there.
This is a Victorian circa 1885 silver plate (not sterling) pickle castor with cranberry glass jar. This was made by Poole Silver Company of Taunton, Massachusetts in shape number 176. It is not a rare piece like someone had told you, there was a pickle castor in every household back then and these were made by all of the silver companies at the time. It is safe to polish this piece.
The value is $100 to $150 retail.
