This aluminum bowl is actually quite large and measures 11 ½” x 7″. At the bottom of the bowl is a highly detailed and large crown (3″ x 3″) which lies within a wreath of laurel or oak leaves. The crown is stamped into the bowl and is in high relief. Below the crown is a smaller stamped crown with the number “980.” Let me warn you that this does not stand for silver content as there is no way that this bowl is made of silver but is rather made of aluminum as previously stated. A nice bowl and something useful that could be used around the house. Quite reasonably priced.
