This bowl was part of a hoard found by Sir Henry Layard in 1850-1851 CE in the North-West Palace at Nimrud (ancient Kalhu). They were probably deposited there in the 8th century BCE. The decoration on the bowls is Phoenician, very similar in many respects to the that of the so-called "Nimrud ivories". The bowls might have been tribute or taken as booty by the Assyrians during one of their military campaigns in the western part of the Assyrian Empire. (The British Museum, London).
