Wood Bowl w/Sterling Base

valmont325July 25, 2012

On the Base of this wood Bowl Is a Sterling base. On the base itself it reads Crown(Followed by a picture of a crown underneath) then Underneath that it says Sterling.

On the underside of the wood bowl there was a leftover piece of a sticker. All i can make out is Silver and NY.

Anyone give me so info.

What kind of wood? (Has some sap residue still)

Age?

Use?

Maker

And most importantly....VALUE!

I do appreciate it. =)

Likely maple and varnished and the varnish is peeling. Age....30 years old? maybe 40?
Value? scrap weight of the silver.

well i just did some touch up. Cleaned, lightly sanded, then mineral oil. So the color is showing back up. I think it must have more value then just scrap weight.

Is the bowl attached to the metal or is it just a generic bowl holder? This doesn't matter one bit--I'm just curious!

Estimating the scrap value at between $20 and $25. You really think you can get more?

Your base is different and a little nicer proportioned from what I can tell. How big is it? Salad serving bowl size?

The seller has had the above example you posted on eBay since Jan 1/2011, and has yet to sell it. So that tells me it will be a hard sell unless you have somebody in particular who wants it.

Asking price and selling price are very different.
Check completed listings on ebay.
