Question
I have a Fisher sterling "earlyGeorgian"  2003 Water Pitcher.
How much is it worth?
Thx

Answer
Hi, Eileen.

Even though a buyer may not plan to melt it down, the commodity price of silver coupled with the weight affect the price. One reference says this piece weighs 641 grams. If the base is not weighted inside with cement, the scrap value of the piece is almost $600. If the base is weighted, it's very difficult to tell what the true weight of the silver is.

Assuming it is not weighted, the value on the market could be quite variable but you have some idea of the lowest price. My guess is that it would bring between $700 and $1,100.



I did find a reference to an actual sale of this piece: http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/fisher-sterling-silver-early-georgian-wate. This was in 2008, but it still will give you some idea. Consider signing up for a free trial of WorthPoint so you can the the actual sale price.
