Determining Age and Value of Old Measuring Cup?

I have a five cup measuring jar that has measured scales for liquids by weight, quart, pint, and gill and by tea and coffee cups. There is also dry measure (flour) by 1/4 pounds and ounces. It is also embossed with helpful advice, such as:


1 pound sugar makes 1 pint, 1 pound butter makes 1 pint, good milk contains 10% cream, etc.

It is pink and looks to be very old but in great shape. Any help with age and value would be appreciated

Locate the mfg. stamped/embossed/label on the bottom of the measuring cup.
Do a google search using mfg. name with measuring cup. Go to the library and look through/order through them a book on that manufacturer. Seek an antique dealer to have them look at the item and give their opinion. I got a book from the library, and the author had their contact information in it. I was asked to send them pics of different angles of the item and they could tell me more about it. The author did contact me. Just another way of obtaining information through various sources.
