I found this at a sale recently and fell in love with it. It is a heavy silver plate (I don't think it is sterling as I cannot find any marks at all) gravy boat? It may have had a glass insert - as with the holes on the side of the shell, you certainly could not put any liquids in it. Highly detailed with attached silver plate coral handle with a coral support and 3 feet. It is nicely made and looks great just sitting on a table or in a cabinet. I have searched in vain for something comparable but no luck. It is about 5" high at the handle and 7" long from spout to handle and about 4 1/8" wide. Very good condition with no dents and heavy at 1 lb 13 oz.
