This is a magnificent, fine and impressive antique George VI English sterling silver presentation bowl with sporting interest; an addition to our 1930's ornamental silverware collection 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.
