This exceptional antique 1930s sterling silver bowl has a circular rounded form onto a shaped spreading foot.


The plain body of this impressive bowl is encircled with cast and applied domed medallions, each encompassed with a bud decorated border and illustrated with the sporting events: running, shot put, hurdles, long jump, high jump and tug of war*.


The bowl is fitted with two exceptional planished handles, ornamented with flat engraved interlacing Celtic style ornamentation to either side of each handpiece.


This sterling silver bowl is supported by a plain quatrefoil shaped spreading base with four tri-lobed feet.


This versatile bowl is a substantial size and if required could be used as a wine/bottle cooler.


* These sporting events can be considered as field and track sports, and have each been a part of the Olympic Games; this includes tug of war which was incorporated into the Olympics between 1900-1920, until the sport was considered to be distinct from athletics.
