Hello Everybody!
I have this what looks like a silver sugar bowl and was not able to find marking on it.
What is interesting is that it is silver but very primitively made to my opinion.
The interior is all hammered / chiseled etc. and left rough to achieve this simple shape which made me think it is either very old or made in the the middle east.
It is kind of heavy ie made of thick silver sheet- weights 170grams.
Found in Sweden if that matters.

It is 7.5cm high x 8.5cm wide
Take a look!
Thanks in advance!

Hello mitko07,
Aside from the current distractions (which may give us all a lot of time to peruse the forums), one reason you my not have had a reply is that it is unmarked. This means that there is little to say.
As a maker I can tell you that it has a provincial feel. The tool marks are typical of rough quick work. But they are not necessarily bad they could be of an older time when work, except for the highest quality, was rough do to the limited amount of tools. Also there is little to say about the design. Cast feet and ribs were common for a long time. To me it is a nice object that is highly functional and pretty.
