Customer Question
I halve a small...

I halve a small lidded pitcher with rattan wrapping on the handle and lid handle. The bottom says the maker is Poole of Taunton, Mass and HM2. I am just wondering what it was used for. I inherited it.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not really. I have had it for a while and just want to be able to tell whomever receives it next exactly what it was used for. I have a photo but don't know to lad it onto this site using my iPad.

I, I have 2 very old and Barton pieces that I believe are
Hello - I have 2 very old Reed and Barton pieces that I believe are silverplate or hollowware. They have been stored away and are nearly black in color. There are markings on the bottom of each. One is an ice pitcher with an ice guard. The markings on that are hard to read - it looks like a small C PCA and under it is Poole Silver (with a marking I can't identify) under that is Taunton Mass and under that the numbers 5008. The other is a tea pot with the very same design on the handle and the feet. The markings on that are 1759 and under that is Read & Barton and under that is 5. I'm wondering how old they are and if they have any value. Thank you for any direction you can provide. Nancy W … read more
