Antique Butter Bowl - Quadruple Silver Plated

A lovely silver plated butter bowl with a knife rest along the side for the type of butter knife that has the twist in center. This elegant bowl was produced by Forbes Silver Co dating to late 1800's - early 1900's in Meriden, Connecticut. Two sturdy embossed scrolled handles have a single petaled flower peeking out in the center. Feathery scrolls travel around the rim bordering the inner lip. The knife rest is shaped in the scroll motif. The rounded top has a simple mirror finish, and the only decor is the knob on top.

The quadruple silver plate has held up very well for there is no wear on the exterior to the base metal beneath. Beneath the base is a stamped double circle with an Eagle bust center. Above the circles is "Forbes Silver" and beneath "Quadruple" plus the number 183.

This fancy antique butter bowl does not have the insert which would have been glass or a silver plate. Of course any small dish could be used to make this lovely table ware complete.

Size: Handle to handle measures 8" x 5-1/2" tall

Condition: Excellent! No dents or dings. No wear of silver plate on exterior surface. The floor of the interior has about a 1/2" spot where a surface layer has peeled.
