Antique 19th c. silver plate tureen Antique 19th c. silver plate tureen

An antique silver plated footed tureen with lid, sold as is for display or repair; unsigned aside from incised numbers 9275-11 on bottom of lid and the bottom of the bowl - we do not know the maker or the precise age; measures approximately 11" tall assembled to top of lid finial; about 13" long across top of bowl; it's just over 9.25" wide across top of bowl (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only).  Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition, for repair - with surface wear, plate loss, significant denting (the lid does not really fit perfectly onto the bowl due to denting), dings, scratches to the finish, several ordering repairs.  The finial on the lid is loose and wobbly.  Some of the metal has turned green.  A small piece missing from the edge of the lid, as though it used to have a hinge but there is no other evidence of this.  Please see photos.
