This is one of the most beautiful antique sterling bowls you could hope to see. It has an exquisite shape and is decorated with applied alternating classical motifs around the top. The diameter of the bowl is 10.5 inches and the height is 2.25 inches. There are four marks on the bottom. One is the word sterling, another is the pattern number, third is the maker's mark - that of Fuchs and Beiderhase - and the fourth is the retailer's name: Harris and Shafer. The firm of Fuchs and Beiderhase was founded in 1891 and became part of the Alvin Corporation in 1896. Since this piece does not bear the Alvin mark, it predates 1896. Harris and Shafer was a major jewelry store in Washington D. C. The piece weighs 17 ounces on a postal scale, quite heavy for a bowl. The silver value alone is considerable. It is an outstanding piece of sterling silver.
