An attractive Dutch silver bowl of oval form on a pedestal foot. The deep embossed decoration shows figural scenes of village life in 19th century Holland, one side with milkmen wearing top hats, the other side with a peasant couple hoeing the land. The cast handles show a classical figure of a maiden and have a prick dot “marriage” inscription of 2 names with the date 1843. Weight 198 grams, 6.3 troy ounces. Height 8.2 cms. Spread 24 cms Top 16 x 13 cms. Marked on the handles and underneath the base with Dutch silver marks, silver grade 833. Circa 1843.
This lovely bowl is in very good condition with no damage or signs of restoration. The silver marks are clear.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
Two-handled silver bowls were used to celebrate childbirth but may have been passed around at other festive occasions as well when brandewijn, liquor distilled from wine to which sugar and raisins were added, would be served from them with a spoon.
