I am very excited that it appears to be authentic, if anyone thinks otherwise please let me know, I like to know if items in my collection are real or not.
I found it at a thrift store, and when I picked it up my heart skipped a beat. I didn't know what it was, but it just felt right! I was so excited I held it while the teller rang it in, so they didn't accidentally drop it. :)
Thanks again for your help legrandmogol!
Do you think it is the type of item I need to get authenticated? If it were British silver I wouldn't bother since I know it fairly well. If so where would you recommend?
Here are the dimensions and what not for future reference;
9 3/4" diameter at the furthest point,
just under 7" inner circle,
0.5 mm thick rim,
