Hello. Sorry for the wait! My name is***** am happy to help you with your appraisal question.

It is a Nestor, Made in England Arts and Crafts copper and brass bowl circa 1900. Nestor joined Arts and Crafts movement and made these beautiful hand-made, in this case, hand-hammered dishes, vases, and other items to celebrate the quality, skill, and beauty of objects that are hand-made. Arts and Crafts revolted against the industrial revolution, commercial mass production, machine-made objects that lacked quality, beauty, and soul. Your bowl comes from that movement, as I mentioned above it was hand-made, hand-hammered using basic, primitive tools and ancient techniques. It is rather an attractive dish, current market value is around: $250- $300. Hope this helps :)
