I was hoping someone would be able to help me idntify this creamer (pics below). I can not find any marks. I think it is Silver plate. The bottom and the spout are added on (maybe soldered) it looks as if hand's small 2 3/4" high x 5" wide from spout to handle. I have searched and searched but have not been able to come up with anything. I am assuming it was part of a tea set.

Thank YOu Very Much!!

The creamer probably did come with at least a sugar bowl, if not a whole teaset. Without any marks, it could be near impossible to track down the maker. Perhaps if it came with a teaset, only the platter or teapot would have been marked. It looks like it was made fairly recently.

Perhaps somebody else can provide better input!

I agree, it does look like 20th century silverplate, probably post 1950. The absence of a mark is unusual, though. It might have been replated at some point, and the original marks obscured.
