Measuring 5 1/2" wide by 2 5/8" high, and weighing a substantial 5.3 T. oz., this item was made by The Stieff Company of Baltimore.
Made for Colonial Williamsburg as part of an exclusive line, it is described in a 1976 catalog as "A design of classic simplicity copied from a bowl made by Philip Syng (1676-1739)."
It sits on a tiered base that is 3" across, and has an applied upper rim.
There is a line "MSB" script monogram on the side.
In exceptionally fine condition, it sits evenly, is free of dents, and has a brilliant finish. Apart from one pinprick nick on the lower portion of the body, it is without signs of use.
Marks are "Stieff," "Sterling," the "C.W." emblem, and model number "R.T. 28," all located on the underside.
