I have a question about a piece that I cannot place. It looks to be a silver plated or silver item that is shaped like a small flower vase at 7 3/4 inches high. It has two flowered ornate handles. It is signed on the bottom by what I believe is "MIDA BC" or "MIDA 13C" We've had it in the family for ages and I was wondering if anyone can give me information on what it is and where I could learn about it. Half way up, it has a ringed surface around the circumference where the handles attach, There is also a pattern engraved into it with flowers and peaks throughout. Thank you very much.

Is this what you have?

The above is from the Meriden B.Company 1886-7 catalog.

Scott,
You are wonderful. I was trying to find it everywhere. That is it exactly what I have. Is there someplace I can get this catalog so I know the purpose of this item?
Thank you very much!
