Literature: These shallow bowls are often described as porringers. It’s probably more likely that they were used as a vessel for eating from, especially for feeding the sick, rather than for letting blood. This type of porringer with one ear will either be hallmarked around the rim, or in the centre of the base, either underneath or on the interior.

Condition

This early silver bowl is in very good condition. Stamped underneath with a full set of English silver hallmarks, lion mark to the reverse of the handle.
