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!

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.
