Vintage (probably pre 1940?) silverplate 20" tall coffee or tea urn with open space on bottom for heating candle. It polished upo nicely for me - nice and bright but could use more work. No dings or dents. The left handle (bottom only) has come loose from the pot (see photo) but it in no way compromises the use of the urn nor is it even very noticeable. T are no stamps or marks that I could find and I am not an expert in silverplate so you are on your own It is a magnificent piece for serving and new ones - well, you know what they cost.
