I've done a little research on this company founded in Derby, CT. Apparently they created lovely pieces in both sterling and sterling plate. I have magnet tested this piece and it does not stick. I did not try to polish it as I realize that some buyers prefer the patina. I refuse to scratch or acid test my items as my magnet test has proved quite good enough for a long time. Do not purchase this item base on the sterling content but rather becasue it's a lovely antique cherub piece in minty condition
