Both sides of the bowl are decorated and the handles are in the shape of snakes. The bowl is hallmarked on the bottom rim with a maker's mark, number 13 which was used in Germany to guarantee 80% silver purity and scripted letter N used in Nuremberg, Germany in the early 19th century. The item has some small dents around upper rim (see images), scratches and tarnish spots, but there are no other damages. It looks very nice. Height to upper rim: 2.5 inches, height up to handle: 3.0 inches, width handle to handle: 5.0 inches, weight: 3.3 oz.
