Bowl And Liner (USA), late 19th century
This is a Bowl and liner. It was manufactured by Gorham Manufacturing Company. It is dated late 19th century and we acquired it in 1959. Its medium is raised, repoussé, chased silver, silver-plated metal (liner). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.
Although made in Burma or India, this bowl was likely retailed by Gorham, who provided a liner to expand its functional possibilities for dining or display in a Western context. De Forest provided similar silver to Tiffany & Company, which they sold.
