Rare Reed And Barton Francis 1 Sterling Serving Bowl Vintage For SaleThis is a serving bowl platter I think. My Family had a massive set with dozens of pieces. So they are all dead now so I have no idea what to exactly call this. I do know my great great granfather bought it when he got married and I am 44 and hes been dead for years and I just have no idea how old it is. On the back it is stamped Reed and Barton Francis 1 Sterling X568 and it has a symbol of an hour glass. I tried for two solid hours to capture this small print on camera and it drove me insane and I had to take a valium! It just does not show on camera. If anyone wants to see the stamping all I can think of to do is video it with my phone and send it to your phone. If you look at the photos you can see the size. I put the valium pill bottle in the middle of it out of anger from trying to capture the print. This piece is MINT!!!!!! No dents,no scratches, its perfection. I will say I refuse to polish it for the photos because my nails would be ruined and if you buy this piece it should give you much joy to polish it with love and joy! Its highly ornate and there is many tiny spots to dig into to polish and I did not need another valium to polish it for hours. However its pretty polished,My Mother polishes all the sterling twice a year. This is the only piece she will let me sell to put the money toward a tummy tuck. This piece came from an old Virginia family:eccentric, possibly insane, aristocratic, lived in mansions, butnever really entertained with the pieces, they just collected it. So thats that. If you have any questions I can try and get my Mother to remember any other details. I accept paypal only. I will insure the piece included in shipping which will be 10.00.I will send the item same day as payment received with UPS and have signature required so they dont leave it on your doorstep which they are infamous for. It will be packaged to perfection. If you require any more photos I will be more than happy to do so. Thank you so much and I hope whoever buys it enjoys it.On May-27-13 at 22:07:01 PDT, seller added the following information:
