Maker: George Fox. London 1873
The panels are interspersed with stars with beaded points. The matted background is engraved with intertwined decorative leaves. The gilding on the inside of the bowl is a very beautiful warm colour,

The full set of hallmarks is very clearly stamped on the reverse of the bowl and are crisp. There are also some informative scratched markings in code on the base.
