It is big and truly beautiful! It measures 13 inches across and 13.5 inches tall. It is nice and heavy - the base weighs 5 pounds and the bowl weighs 15 pounds. It really chimes when pinged!
It is etched "Compliments of the Openero Club May 2nd 1910". We have lost the story of exactly how it came to our family. We also have not been able to find information on who the Openero Club is. If anyone knows or has information - we would love to hear.
There are some chips in the top edges. There are also some slight chips on the inside ring of the base where the bowl sits. We do not feel that these are noticeable or that they detract from the appearance of the bowl. We are not experts in this type of item and are glad to answer questions.It will be double boxed and packed well. We have been asked to detail the chips around the rim. We will do our best! The bowl has "scallops" too the top rim, each of these has 18 "teeth". Using this - there are 108 teeth, and we found 9 will some type of chip. None of the chips are teeth missing - all have their height. There are four where we judge there to be more than 1/4 - but less than 1/2 of the tooth missing (again - not in height - either inside or outside). We have photographed the top rim of the bowl with these marked in orange. We have also photographed these with our hand beside them. The chip is located at the crease where my little finger meets my palm. There are five more that we found to have small chips. All of these are less than 1/8 of the mass of the tooth and some of them we had to work to find. Again please remember that we are not experts! We are a family that has moved and downsized considerably.
We would like to have this bowl find someone who will appreciate it. We are happy to answer any additional questions.
