Measuring 10 1/2" in diameter and 4" high, this canted and footed bowl was made by the Benedict Manufacturing Company, and this line of Karnak Brass was created in 1911 to celebrate classic Egyptian design. Most items in this line were brass, but some were silver plated, as is this one. The rim is decorated with leaf and bead design, and on two sides, a large brass scarab in relief is surrounded by winged elements and other incised designs. The bottom has 4 concentric raised circles, with four ball feet. In good condition, with some scrapes, small dents and slight wear to plated surface, the silver surface has a very lovely patina, a steely silver tone.
