This beautiful solid sterling silver fruit bowl was crafted by Fisher Silversmiths Inc. most likely in 1950s. The company has been in production since 1936 in Jersey City, NJ and is still in business, yet has stopped producing pieces since the 1970s. The footed style bowl is the Dublin pattern #251 and weighs 1,214.5 grams and is in excellent condition with signs of normal wear and scuffs which are pictured. It has no monograms and is hallmarked on its base with the Fisher hallmark and 'STERLING 251 Dublin'. It measures 5 1/4" in height, and the base's diameter measures 5" and the bowl's opening measures 11". The piece is spectacular and would be a beautiful addition to any collection or a perfect start to one.
