Sterling Holloware: Punch Bowls

Sterling Silver Punch Bowls

Before the sterling silver punch bowl was created, punch was served from bowls that were wooden, ceramic, and porcelain. The world became more interconnected, and wealthy families began requesting punch bowls made of silver and covered in elaborate designs. Paul Revere was commissioned by the Sons of Liberty to design a sterling silver punch bowl engraved with the names of the founding fathers, along with patriotic phrases. He was a skilled silversmith before his famous midnight ride. Here at Nelson & Nelson Antiques, we have a wonderful selection of sterling silver punch bowls to choose from. Stop by our store in New York City, or take a look around our website for that antique that catches your eye.
