According to the Chickering volume on Arthur Stone, the mark on this 5 3/8" top diameter, 2 1/4" tall, 7.1 T. oz., bowl was in use 1910-37. The craftsman's mark is a "C" which narrows these years as the possibilities for this are David Carlson, 1909-19, Magnus Carlberg, 1922-32, or a third unidentified person c. 1929.
This is a superbly well-crafted piece, in equally fine condition. The body is tapered with a slight splayed top edge that has an applied, double lined band on the outside. The exterior has a subtly hammered surface while the interior is smooth. There is no monogram, inscription, or engraving. There is a rimmed base that measures 2" across and 3/8" high.
As suggested, the condition is flawless. It is free of dents, scratches, or marring. The surface has a brilliant, mirror-like, hand polished finish.
