Marks found on the bowl underside consist of a 3-turreted castle and old English letters that appear to represent "E P M" (meaning 'electroplated metal'). The marks identify the maker as Corbell & Company, a silver company founded in England which later became an American silver company.
Very good vintage condition, a few minor areas of wear to the plated finish.
