Literature: 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.
There is a similar bowl in the Metropolitan Mueum of Art – http://www.metmuseum.org/collection/the-collection-online/search/192340
Good clear silver marks. The gilt is unworn. There are a few small dinks and signs of earlier repairs, please contact us for details. 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.
