Good evening, Cindy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. I can't quite make out the marks other than one being an English lion rampant so without better photographs of the marks I can't identify date or specific maker but with what I can tell, this is:

A Georgian (style?) sterling silver repousse cream pitcher
English, late 18th to late 19th century
4 inches tall, 2.65 ounces (2.415 troy ounces)
$60-80 is the value of the silver if it were melted and sold as "scrap"; there is some chance that knowing the maker and age would change the value. If you can get better photographs and attach them I would be happy to re-evaluate this at no charge.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
