A fun whimsical nut bowl with the ever-present squirrel stashing his nuts.
The outside of the heavy metal bowl has been silver plated. The interior had a gold wash and still has remnants of the gilding. The mouth edge has a lined border. This pattern is repeated in the four-knob feet. The base is flat. Based on the streamlined styling, I’d estimate that the bowl is from the 1920s or 1930s.

A manufacturer’s mark on the base center reads, “REG. U.S. PAT. OFF. APOLLO SILVER CO”. This encircles a fleur de lis. Under this circle are the words, “QUADRUPLEPLATE and the production number 1342.

MEASUREMENTS
8” (20.3 cm) long x 6 ½” (16.5 cm) diameter x 6” (15.2 cm) tall. Weighs 1 lb 3.8 oz (560 g)

CONDITION
Although much silver remains, there are silver losses and wear to the outside the bowl. Most of the silver losses are well distributed, except for a 1” wide spot on the lower half of one side (see photo). Much of the gold wash on the interior is worn off; with about 40% remaining. There are two significant dents. One is near the mouth and one is midway on the body. There are also a few deep scratches. Otherwise, there are no other dents, cracks, or breaks. The bowl rests flat on a surface.

Such a cute little squirrel. Every house needs a nut bowl!
