Around the rim of the bowl are hand engraved depictions of the 12 astrological signs (along with the names of the signs in small lettering). Between each of the signs is a lovely flower design. Underneath the sign of Aquarius are four hallmarks: the first has faded and only the beginning letter "G" can be seen. Presumably it once read Gorham. The next three hallmarks are, ".925," a triangle and a "g." On the base of the bowl is marked: "Sterling Silver, A475" A charming piece of silver.
Very good. Some age scratches.
