diameter 6; height 2 3/8 inches, weight 8.42 Troy ounces, no monogram, some light scratches to interior (see second enlargement) but fine overall condition, maker Herman Glendenning.

Not a common form, this five lobed bowl is deceptively simple but devilishly difficult to make.

Then five pieces of molding were applied over the edge and soldered... Click for details

Other reasonable possibilities would include John K.... Click for details
