19th Century Squirrel Nut Bowl, circa 1910


Appropriately named "Squirrel Nut Bowl" this silver plated figural nut bowl features a squirrel sitting atop a branch which is between openings of an eight-sided scalloped and tulip shaped perimeter. The squirrel is eating a nut with his full tail up his back, while the bowl rests on four floral patterned feet (see image). The bowl is of outstanding quality and is in excellent condition with a minimal amount of wear. There is no indication of pitting and no silver plate worn or lacking. The bowl was made in 1910 by the Van Bergh Silver Plate Co. which started business in 1892 in Rochester, New York. The markings on the bowl are as follows: "Made and Guaranteed By The Van Bergh S P Rochester 1687 L." Dimensions: 6 1/2" high x 8" diameter.
