This enchanting silver bowl by renowned American maker Bailey Banks & Biddle exhibits magnificent artistry and quality. Crafted in a subtle waved form, this stunning dish boasts an exuberant floral design of robust blooms that drape over the rim and comprise the bowl's footing. Such exquisite craftsmanship placed this Philadelphia firm at the forefront of silversmiths in America's golden age of decorative silver. 

 Bailey Banks & Biddle is truly one of the country's best-loved makers of fine silver, and has received some of the most important commissions. At the turn of the century, the company was asked by the U.S. Government to update the Great Seal of the United States. This design remains the official version of the seal today. The company also designed and made many of the military medals still in use today, including the Medal of Honor, designed in 1905, the first Pilot Wings in 1917, the Distinguished Flying Cross in 1926, the Silver Star and Bronze Star in 1932, and the Purple Heart, the nation's oldest military order.

 Originally known as Bailey & Kitchen, Bailey Banks & Biddle was founded in 1832.  Evolving through the century to assume its current name in 1878, the prestigious company was the first jeweler in the United States to introduce the British Sterling Silver standard. American silversmiths at that time worked with silver of 90% purity, which is known as coin silver. Co-founder Joseph Trowbridge Bailey raised his standard to 92.5%, allowing his company's silver to compete with the finest imports from around the world.
