Susan, DISCUSSIONS such as yours belongs in the DISCUSSIONS wall.  You're in the Comment Wall.

Your item is called a Tazza. I can see some letters near the thumb-nut, partially hidden by it. Can you remove the nut and decipher what it says? I think the first letter is W and the second, an M which leads me to believe it was made by WMF, a German foundry which began in 1853 and is still operating. There might be a tiny mark that looks like "1/x" which is the old metric system of silver plating.  Also, sometimes there is another letter that follows the WMF, like WMFM.  M=brass. The base metal of YOUR piece is "German silver" which consists of copper, zinc and nickel. "Silver" refers to the color, not metal.

A jeweler can solder the broken portion; cost $50. or less. IF IT IS WMF, value is $3-4,000, USD.

It has been a long time since I have posted anything on here, and I am probably totally messing it up.  These pictures are from an item that belonged to my parents    It looks like a silver (?) bowl with stand.  The stand has broken away for the bowl.   The base is of a merman blowing on a shell.   No idea what it is or if it is real silver.  On the very bottom there are some etchings.  The name STEPP is my parents last name.   The design is definitely nautical.   But I really don't know anything about it, and my parents have passed on.   Thanks for any help.

ed find the group you want, and there will be a place to click that says, "add discussion"

Comment by Ed Young on June 4, 2020 at 1:11pm

Thank you Tom.  Now to find the Discussion Wall.......

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on June 4, 2020 at 1:05pm

Ed, multiple pics not available  in the COMMENT WALL where you put your Post.

You're supposed to put your Post in the DISCUSSION WALL (You too, Mary Pallay).

Click, "+Add a Discussion" above the DarkBlue line above.

Mary, your tool is a Rasp, which can be used for body work or woodworking. It's like a file that cuts down large areas quickly. They come in various shapes and teeth; some, like yours, have interchangeable blades. Yours, with wooden handles, is "Vintage".

Comment by Craig Phillips / B & C Emporium on May 31, 2020 at 2:31pm

mary pallay, that is a lead file for doing body work on cars

Comment by Mary Pallay on May 30, 2020 at 2:24pm

Comment by Ed Young on May 23, 2020 at 8:44am

BikerBonnie, thank you for your help.  I really appreciate the effort.  That is quite a story.  Case closed.
