An Irish Silver Bowl made in Cork by Egan 1911- Cork Silver TownmarkSOLD

This Exceptionally Rare Irish Silver Bowl was made by Egan Jewellers and Silversmiths in Cork c1910

The firm of Egan Jewellers and Silversmiths had a long and distinguished history in Cork. Founded in the 1820's on the Grand Parade, the firm moved to Saint Patrick's Street in 1876, where it was to remain for 110 years. The original shop on Saint Patrick's Street was destroyed during the burning of Cork in 1920, but reopened for business in an elegant new shop on the same site in 1925.

During the Civil War in 1922, communications between Dublin and Cork were disrupted and, for a short time, Egan Jewellers produced silver which was assayed by the firm itself. This 'Republican silver' is now extremely valuable. Some examples of this silver may be seen in Cork Public Museum.

It is in excellent condition with no damage or repair. It measures 18cm tall, 17cm wide and wieghs 524g
