Middletown Plate Co. Victorian Tray/Basket

Has a stamp that says "Middletown Plate Co. Quadruple Plate" then it says "1899 Hard White Metal B.C." There is some kind of letter engraving on the handle, looks to be made by the manufacturer. I'm wanting to know the estimated value of this piece, if it is worth more than the dollar I paid for it.

A lot depends on how well your piece cleans up, if the plating is worn its value is about what you paid for it. Currently there is a great deal of this type of silver plate on the market a result of Baby Boomers inheriting their parents silverplate and then dumping it on the market. If your piece cleans up without any missing plate you might get about $45.00 for it.
