This is truely a special older Silver Bowl, This bowl is 5 1/2 inches across, one of my customers took it home thinking she would give it to her brother-in law. Then she really cleaned it and decided that he would not like it anyway. After she cleaned it you could tell it was a special piece of silver. It has flowers overlay the bottom silver. Very pretty would make a lovely house warming gift. It is made by a special silver co that I can't read but Quadruple plate A perfect gift.
