Bowl - Round with Chased Flowers - Cork circa 1830 by Isaac Solomon - 15cm diameter; 10cm high; 320g - WR/3202</p>

This fine looking silver bowl was made in Cork by Isaac Solomon circa 1830. It is chased all over in typical floral scroll style for the period and in line with hollowware made in Dublin from the 1820 to 1840 period. The two cartouches are engraved: one with a script monogram and the other with a griffin crest. The bowl has a very good weight and its size suggests its original use as a large sugar bowl, although these days they tend to be multi-purpose.

 

The underside of the bowl is clearly stamped "STERLING" and "IS" for Isaac Solomon and the condition is excellent throughout with original seams showing.
