Town Hall

Q: I have an iron bank that my father and his sister had as children in the 1880s. Can you tell me what it is and who made it?
A: Your bank is called Town Hall and was made by Kyser & Rex in 1882. It was painted in various colors and trimmed with bronze. The tower originally had a paper clock face on it. Town Hall banks have sold for $200 to $1900, depending on color and condition.

I have a five piece pewter set that consist of a very large tray, a teapot, a coffee pot, a sugar bowl and a cream pitcher. There is an inscription on the front of each piece V L H. On all the lids there is a small crab. I believe it was purchased in Germany over 70 years ago. I am trying to find out what it is worth. Can you help me?
