This is an Antique Jug Kettle. This has a silver lid with a wooden Knob. Wooden handle on the side. Is to be said it's easier to hold and pour heavier fluids. This is Hallmarked....stamped with a Crown...Then Under it says ITALY and under that is like a rectangle Flag/arrow that has a Handwritten W and an A below the W but off to the right a bit. i couldnt for the life of me find anything on Italian Hallmarks like this. So not sure if it's Sterling or Plate but it's tarnishing nicely like silver.... and not turning black. Measures about 8 inches tall frombottom to the top of knob. About 8.5 inches from one end to the end of spout and from other end to the end of the handle is about 12 inches.
