Total newbie here, any help is greatly appreciated. This item was found in my grandmother's attic. I believe it is sterling, though the word sterling does not appear on it. I have no idea of age or place of origin.
I am not even certain that it is a jigger, so feel free to correct me if I am wrong. The pattern on the outside is quite ornate - sort of snake/fish looking creatures all the way around.
The diameter is 2 1/4". The overall height is a tiny bit less than 3". I believe the marks on the bottom are clear enough in the photos. But to clarify them:
1) A small triangle in the center
2) The letters "AR" (as best I can read them) in one oval
3) A very ornate "S" (as best as I can read it) in one oval
4) Three tiny castles in one oval with the numbers "01" or perhaps "91" underneath the castles, with a line separating the numbers from the castles.
Thanks for reading all that! Any help in determining origin, age and marks is greatly appreciated,
