Hi Mica. I'm online and reviewing this now.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

These small urn shaped pieces were normally cigarette holders. They were often found on dinner tables. With a decline in the popularity of smoking, they are now sometimes used as small vases.

Edward Viner founded his shop in the 1890s in Sheffield, UK. This plated silver piece dates 1940s-50s.

The estimated retail value is $50-60.

I hope this helps,

Positive, please.

Kind regards,

Doris

I have some forks, which I think may be pickle forks. I will try to photograph tomorrow and send. Also have what I think
is a sterling toothpick. Will photo that also. I have a few appointments in the morning, so it will probably be in the afternoon. We had over a foot of snow today, so I'm actually snowed in right now. My plower will probably show up early in the morning. I told him he could put me last on his list.

i will be here in the afternoon tomorrow. Snow is beautiful but does limit our movements. We mostly get rain when you get snow. "Talk" to you tomorrow.

My backyard is gorgeous. Trees laden with snow, with dozens of mourning doves on the branches earlier. Waiting to be fed.
I took out a tray of sunflower seeds and they converged on it! Night time now. Have a good night.

Good night.
