    Antique store find c.1920 Sterling Tea Ball Teapot & A Sterling Compote.

    I was visiting a small town last week and found these in an antique shop. The sterling teapot strainer I paid $3 for. It is c. 1920, I looked on ebay and some other sites and I should be able to get around $70 for it. The sterling compote I'm not sure about. It doesn't have any makers marks so I'm not sure about it. If anyone knows please let me know.

    Thanks guys. I'm back in the neighborhood again this week and the same shop has an ad in the local paper that they are doing a 3 estate inside yard sale there until it's all gone. I noticed everything there was really cheap last week. I'll hit it again when they open and see if I can score again.
