Description

Circa 1905 impressive large American sterling silver bowl made by the famous S. Kirk & Son Company of Baltimore, Maryland. The company was founded by Samuel Kirk in the early part of the 19th century. He was descended from English silversmiths, and his own descendants continued the tradition.
Kirk and Son was known for its fine craftsmanship, and its silver graced the table of White House presidents. The company was combined with the Stieff company, another Baltimore family firm, in 1979, and continues to this day.
This bowl has a tapering edge rim with a thick moulded edge. The sides continue to taper to the flat bottom, having an attractive monogram to centre.
This bowl or dish can be used to serve fruit, bread, or whatever you wish.
It is marked S. Kirk and Son Co. 925/1000. This is exactly the same fineness as English sterling silver.
Size-9 5/8 inches diameter by 2.5 inches high
Weight-450 grams.
This impressive bowl, with good gauge, weight, and clean and classic style, is in very good condition having been professionally polished.
Considering the value of just the scrap weight of this bowl, this is a wonderful value, as silver prices continue to soar.
It will look lovely on the table, or make a great gift.
