Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Vintage metal bowl shaped like a Venetian gondola boat. It has two ornate handles and four feet. The bowl features a beautifully embossed floral pattern.

It weighs 7.5 oz (225 gr).
Including the handles, it is 10'' long (26 cm).
Including the feet and handles, bowl stands 5.5'' tall (14 cm).
Excluding the handles it measures 8.5'' x 4'' (21.5 x 10 cm).

"German silver" (also known as alpacca, argentan or epns) contains no actual silver. It is a copper alloy with zinc and nickel. Silver only refers to the shiny appearance of this metal.

The dish shows some tarnish and discoloration. Handles and feet are very firmly welded to the body. The interior has dark spots and minor dents. There are surface scratches and light stains. The bowl has no tears, holes or cracks. It needs a cleaning and would benefit from polishing. It would look wonderful if it were silver plated. The handles are slightly bent inwards. Their thick and hard metal can't be easily disfigured so I guess this was how they were originally designed.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly upload or send you photos from different angles if you like.
