Object Literature

Antique Silver Dishes were originally made for very specific purposes such as the shell “butter” dishes and scalloped “strawberry dishes” (also known as “salad dishes”) which first appeared in the early 1700’s.

Object Condition

This charming dish is in very good condition. The engraving is still sharp. Small signs of unevenness around the edge and moderate signs of wear commensurate with age as would be expected.
