We have an antique boiling kettle on a stand but am unsure

This answer was rated:

We have an antique boiling kettle on a stand but am unsure if it’s silver or pewter and if it has any value. Stamp on underside is a series of motifs as follows, although I can send photos if necessary.
JA: You can share images and other files once you're connected with the Appraiser. Do you know how old the jo-t2004 is?
Customer: Not a clue although I have done some checking which led me to think it is an early Georgian item ?
JA: What condition is the jo-t3015 in?
Customer: it needs a good clean and 3 small ‘legs’ have been cur short back to the body of the kettle but is in good condition, as is the stand
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Appraiser should know?
Customer: other than seeing some photos, I can’t think of anything to add


My screen name is Rarewares.

I'd like to see the item and the marks, writing or labels on the bottom or back.
