A Bowl is a container that has been utilized throughout history for the preparation and serving of various foods and drinks. The form of a bowl makes it ideal for holding liquids and loose food. The shape of a bowl is most often round but it can also be oblong or square. The reason there are different styles of bowls is a reaction to the needs, tastes, and trends of cultures and societies over the years.

This American Sterling Silver Bowl is fully marked including maker’s stamp, pattern number 17860 (first produced in 1907), and director’s letter M. The first date letter “M” (Old English) used by Tiffany’s represented Edward C. Moore, who was the head of Tiffany’s silver operations until 1891. After his death, the date letters were based on the initial of the current Tiffany president. This practice was discontinued about 1965.
