I picked this piece up at a local estate sale and was pleasantly surprised to find a "Sterling .925" stamp on it. I am hoping the community might be able to help me
1 - Identify a possible maker (I haven't found a mark yet)
2 - Accurately Describe the ship (Colonial era Brittish?)
3 - Figure out what the best/easiest way to polish and clean the piece (it is very tarnished)
4 - (admin edit - see Posting Requirements )
I have found in the past that these forums are a wonderful resource of knowledge and thank you all in advance for sharing your time and knowledge.
