Nothing beats the beauty of silver for formal dining dishes. Silver bowl selections come in a wide range of sizes and uses with some featuring ornate patterns while others stay simple, yet elegant. For instance, punch bowl sets on eBay are often ornate and come with matching cups because the silver bowl is supposed to be a centerpiece decoration. However, serving bowls, such as many Gorham or Revere bowls, often are less ornate because they are only part of the table decorations that blend together for an overall style. Available in new and pre-owned condition, the sterling silver bowl selections are heavier and feature quite a bit more of the shiny metal in their compositions, which makes them more expensive. Silver-plated bowl types, on the other hand, are less expensive because they feature only a thin coating of silver to get the same bright shine. No matter which type you own, the lovely metal patina adds elegance to any meal or party setting. So let your dishes do the decorating at your next formal meal by introducing the glow of silver to your table.
