Customer Question
I have a silver...

I have a silver plate dome...large..very ornate handle comes off...underside of handle has two crossed keys and initials in a triangle formation of E on top and G and S under going left to right..just curious it also has a engraving on front of dome very elaborate...East York...with crown and other symbols.

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?

The handle and dome both have number 1 on them
