Welcome to Tnet. Your thread may get moved by the Mods since you've posted in the section for help with technical issues related to the forum. No matter.

There's a fair amount of this brassware kicking around as tankards, vases, containers and other items. Some of it marked 'HH' and some of it marked 'HH AFTAB'. Some sources say it's from Southern India, but that may just be where the exporter was based. I suspect it was made in Moradabad (aka Pital Nagri or "Brass City") in Northern India, which is the main centre for this type of handicraft.

Whatever the origin, most of the pieces seem to be from the first half of the 20th Century (pre-WWII) and of no great value.

1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard nathan8281! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country). You might also consider adding your state (or country) to your displayed profile (SETTINGS -> EDIT PROFILE) - members may have more success helping you (your location may help, etc.)...
