The Bowl or Centerpiece hasNo Large Dents, No Splits, No Cracks, No Holes and No Repairs that I can find, the bowl standsstraight,the decoration and definition are very crisp, the silver hallmarks are slightly rubbed or worn but still legible although as this bowl or table centerpiece is a used antique it does have the odd small shallow dent in its body along with some minor surface marks and wear from use, it has the patina of age thatisto be expected anda good clean would enhance it greatly. PersonallyIthink that this antique bowl can still be used today as a table centerpiece for sweets, nuts, fruits, cakes or bread rolls and that it would make asuperb addition to any collection, I also think that the bowl or centerpiece is a highly tactile antique to handle and that it looks absolutely fantastic considering that it's almost 90 years old.
