New Little Dish from The Acme Silver Plate Co.

Needs a polish. New in the sense that I picked it up a couple of
months ago. It has reposse fruit inside the bowl and the head of
Hermes on the side. The back has dragons and horns. This is just the
sort of strange Victorian decoration that I love. I was very excited
when I found it. It was made by The Acme Silverplate Company
"quadruple plate".
The Acme Silver Plate Co. made plated silver holloware and silverware
around 1885 in Boston Massachusetts. They were a short lived company
and did not survive more than ten years.

  1. Can I sell silverplate items? Are they worth anything to any particular people (ie antique dealers, gold and silver stores)?
