Hello, could you help me please to find a price for this bowl? (pictures attached) manufacturer: Bigelow kennard & co, markings: H "star" S.
Sterling 60.
I guess it is sterling silver and not silver plated.
Thank you

Answer
Hello.

I see that this piece (or one exactly like it) sold on eBay recently for $63. To my way of thinking, that is its value, at least at the present time. There are thousands of potential buyers looking for sterling pieces on eBay and they have set the price through their willingness to bid. If I understand the weight correctly, the value of the silver content is just under $50.

Best wishes,

Jim
