Found this beautiful (albeit tarnished) silver bowl at a thrift store. Can't find anything about it online. I assume it's silver plated and not sterling because it doesn't feel extremely heavy, but I cannot figure out what the 938 on the bottom means. The only place I've ever seen that before is in German sterling silver, but Wallace is an american company.
