Hi there Fuzzy and thanks for joining us. Forbes Silver Co. of Meriden, Connecticut was formed in 1894 and was one of the original companies that combined to form the International Silver Co. in the late 1890s. It made silverplated holloware such as your bowl which has little commercial value. It is very attractive and a nice addition to any table.

Regards,

Uncle Vic
