This bowl was manufactured in London in 1784 by the famous partnership of silversmiths Daniel Smith and Robert Sharp, who produced silver for the firm of Parker and Wakelin, the Royal Goldsmiths who provided silver for the Prince of Wales and for much of the nobility of England. The bowl is formed of heavy gauge silver, weighing 10.37 troy ounces. It bears an original engraved armorial, which we have identified as that of John Maxwell of Terraughty who succeeded as heir to the Chiefdom of Maxwell (1776-1814), of Galloway, Scotland. The motto, Reviresco, translates as "I Flourish Again." There is also a later presentation that reads "Roberto Mario Rodriguez Talman, Nov. 17, 1945." Size: 2.75 inches ht. x 5.5 inches diameter. Excellent condition, with only one very tiny dimple. Fully hallmarked on the underside, including the original scratch weight.
