I have a silver item that I'm trying to identify. Its some kind of container I think!
It stands 3 1/4 high, 3 3/4 long, and 1 3/8 wide. It has a lot of flowers engraved in it from 1/2 way down to bottom. The top half is smooth with curved lines running top to mid half. The bottom portion has a inset like it sits in something. The very bottom is smooth and has a 5/8 hole in the center. The very top has been stamped with 3 lines of words:

First line is a 3.
Second line says Derby Silver Co.
Third line says 1812.

I don't know how to add pictures. sorry.
I hope you mite have a clue on what it might be.

Thank you.

It is silverplate, made by the Derby Silver Co.
Other than that, I don't have a clue. Sorry.
