Sterling Silver Bowls

Sterling bowls provide an convenient and beautiful way to store and consolidate objects of every shape and size. Over the centuries, sterling bowls have been created in about every style imaginable, ranging from complex Art Nouveau to austere modern designs.

If properly maintained, sterling bowls will keep their original appearance for a lifetime and beyond. Since they often become family heirlooms, silver bowls may be presented as gifts during monumental events such as weddings and childbirths.

Sterling bowls make appropriate gifts for loved ones, or can simply function as tasteful vessels for mementos for years to come. At auction, sterling bowls by iconic makers such as Tiffany & Co. are highly sought after.


Quick Facts

  • In January 2016, Skinner Auctioneers sold a Tiffany & Co. sterling bowl for more than $500
  • In the vast majority of cases, sterling bowls will retain their value better than comparable objects that are silverplated
  • If well cared for, sterling bowls can remain in pristine condition for centuries, as evidenced by examples dating back to the 18th century
