    Hi, Mart!
    It probably has some sort of marking on the bottom, either on the rim or inside. Can you check for that, please, and add a photo or two of the mark?

    it looks mid century...but without markings....that's a guess.

    What kind of markings would I be looking for?

    Probably tiny ones... Maker's mark, indication of silver content - little bitty marks, most likely...

    may be covered up by tarnish.....I suggest you polish it to a gleam...

    Jivvy the research is my favorite

    I'm thinking plate, but I'll use the, "I'm on my phone so pics are small" excuse, if I'm misreading the image...

    It’s really small for a kiddish cup. I’ve never seen one that small.
