REF:-606B

The Greeks used bowls which included small items known as phiales or pateras, and also bowl-shaped cups for drinking called kylices.

In short, bowls have been used for thousands of years. Indeed, the oldest discovery is of a bowl more than 18,000 years old. Further, bowls are a member of the family of hollowware along with items like kettles, jugs and pots. Consequently, bowls have been found in tombs worldwide and artefacts discovered show that silver has been popular for creating bowls for many years. Silver bowls have been found from the times of Ancient Greece, Egypt and Rome.

In time, the more durable silver became commonplace as a material from which to manufacture bowls. However, initially, the cost of the silver and the craftsmanship involved meant that these items were restricted to the wealthy classes.
