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Antique Silver Dishes were originally made for very specific purposes such as the shell “butter” dishes and scalloped “strawberry dishes” (also known as “salad dishes”) which first appeared in the early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. During the later 18th and 19th centuries an extensive range of small open silver dishes evolved, all of which make a practical addition to any dining table.

Object Condition

The little silver dish is in very good condition with moderate signs of wear commensurate with age.
