This item was previously ended early to have further professional testing done after questions & offers from buyers - it has now been both acid tested and had XRF electronic testing and this confirms that the piece is SOLID silver, not plated. Judge size by measurements not photos - It measures approximately 4 5/8 inches to the top of the handle. It has no silver hallmarks but has been tested by both acid and now also by electronic XRF and it tests as solid silver - not plated. Condition is VERY GOOD for age. See ALL pictures - they form part of the description.The bottom of the handle is not attached at all (and there are no signs of solder that would have attached it) The handle is attached to the body on a rivetted area at the. Of the jug but because it is not attached at the bottom it is loose at the bottom, allowing the bottom of the handle to come away from the body (just a few millimetres) when lifted (see picture). There is a little scratched area on the base from where acid testing was done (see LAST picture) but I have been told this could be polished out quite easily.
