The word you are looking for on the bottom is the word STERLING. If you do not see that word anywhere, then it is plated silver meaning that it is an alloy of nickel and copper that was just dipped in silver coating. If you do see the word Sterling, the bowl has a value of 75.00. If you do not see the word, then it is worth 15.00.
