If you have particular loves, I strongly suggest you shoot these objects of your affection. Antiques are, along with photography, one of my interests. In searching for items, I look for the unusual. Here is a handcrafted silver cup, with no maker's marks. The handle with bird appears to be sand cast. The age most likely is the late 1700s or early 1800s, but could be earlier. If anyone has an idea regarding its age, or country of origin, please let me know.
