Here is the front and back of the plate .

This is a circa 1900 reticulated sterling silver bowl in pattern number 5373 made by Redlich Silver Company of New York FOR Tiffany and Company.

Redlich made sterling for many of the high end stores in the US from 1890 to 1946. Items that were made BY Tiffany have a different mark with numbers and date codes. You can still call this a Tiffany bowl since it was made FOR their stores, but I wanted to be clear about what it really is since the fact that it was not made BY Tiffany reduces the value a little bit.

This 10 1/2" bowl should weigh between 8 to 9 troy ounces and has a current value of $300.00.
