This 18th century Spanish colonial dish, a baptismal bowl in the form of a large conch shell, is made entirely of the highest quality colonial silver. In order to lend strength to silver it is usually alloyed with a small amount of copper. Sterling silver for example is .925 percent silver and .75 percent copper. While the silver content in this baptismal bowl is not unadulterated it definitely exceeds the 'sterling' threshold and is in all likelihood, between .950 and .980 percent pure. The features of this lovely baptismal shell include a hand chased scroll handle, a furrowed bottom, hand raised repousse, a scalloped edge and a warm, lustrous surface patina. Mexico. Circa 1750.
Dimensions: 10 inches long x 5 inches wide x 2 inches high.
Condition notes: in good, original condition with lustrous surface patina.
