Howdy--
I found an intriguing small pitcher sans handle. It appears to be hammered metal with silver plate. I've posted a pic of the bottom with hallmarks below. Someone has etched their name above the hallmarks. (Chas P. Walker.) I'm curious as to what this is and if anyone knows what the hallmarks mean? Thanks very much!

Cheers from deep in the woods,
Mayray
