Zinn Pewter

i have a bingit zinn pewter basket, is it worth anything?

i know its reasonably rare adn that it was only made for 1 year i thiink. anymore info not provided by the one website i found on it would be appreciated

Hi! Below is a link to a page that presents items from factories that were based in and around Nuremberg (Germany). The book "Das Nürnberger Kunsthandwerk des Jugendstils" by Claus Pese was most helpful for compiling the information on this page.

Gebrüder Bing Factory (1866-1932)

The factory was founded in Nuremberg by the brothers Ignaz and Adolf Bing. During its long life the factory produced all kinds of metalware. The production of pewter items however only lasted a short time (1904-1905). These items were marked "bingit zinn", but every so often also left unmarked.

http://www.zanida.nl/Nuremberg/nuremberg.html

So we know that your basket is over a hundred years old, dating back to either 1904 or 1905. Plus I did a search for Bingit Zinn on eBay, which had zero results, and nothing showed up for any for sale in antique shops listed online (suggesting that it is not a commonly found item).

Here are some links to people who specialize in valuations of items of this nature. Check with them, but if they are not able to help you don't hesitate to ask them who can. I also understand that Y!A is experiencing a problem with the posted links not working right now, so you may have to copy them and paste them into your address bar.
