This summer I just happened to go into a thriftstore.... It was quite expensive there as it is in a small town that gets a lot of tourists in the summer. I saw this bowl amongst lots of stuff on a table. It stod out to me because it had a simple but elegant design. I could see my jewelry being stored in it.... I was surpriced when it was only about 2€. Had to buy it. I think it is what's called a liberty bowl? Maybe my CW friends from USA can correct me if I am wrong. The lady said she didn't know who made it but she remebered that she and her husband had bought it while visiting USA some time back. I forgot to ask when, stupid of me as I think they are still being made. Saw some larger ones in an interiordesign magazine with flowers in them.
It sais "Paul Revere reproduction VM A. Rogers". Would like to know who/what company made it or what ever could be said about that. What does VM stands for and who is A. Rogers? Is this vintage or contemporary?
I think it is silverplated and not silver because it lacks silvermarks. I used silverpolish and it came out shiny and wonderful.
Sorry half of me reflects in the bowl on the photo, hope you will not be blinded by my not so suntaned legs :) :)
Thanks for any information you can give on this bowl.
Thanks to roycroftbooksfromme I know it is at least not younger than from 1978.
