Offered is this lovely silverplated bowl featuring a single round handle with a thumb rest. It was made in England and features a chased design of flowers and leaves around the sides. The bottom is decorated with a circle of raised “beads.”


My husband and I are debating the function of this bowl.


He says it’s an ashtray and the thumb rest is designed to hold a burning cigarette or cigar.


I think it might be a candle holder to light one’s way to bed in a house without electricity.


Or it could be a small bowl or nappy to hold relishes or condiments.


It could be used for any of these purposes.


The bowl measures 3 3/8 inches in diameter (8.5 cm) and 4.5 inches in length (11.5 cm) counting the handle. It stands almost 1 inch high (2.5 cm).


The piece is marked on the bottom with the numbers 8588 and on the side near the handle “made in England.” We believe it dates to the late 1800s or early 1900s.


Very good condition.


Questions welcomed. Thanks for looking.
