This is a beautiful Antique Victorian Solid Silver Two Handled Dish. It is oval in shape and has a heavily embossed foliate and scroll pattern to the shaped rim which then cascades down into 4 panels. The rest of the sides have an embossed diamond (or square pattern, whichever way you look at it) which have a circle in each shape. To the base is a large shaped pattern which is plain apart from an engraved armorial of lion. It has a very unsual raised base. I can best describe it as having a shaped scroll and leaf pierced pattern which form 4 legs with scroll feet, but it is very hard to describe and has to be seen. It has two pierced lug handles which have embossed scroll ends. It is made from a good guage of silver and has clear hallmarks and is also stamped on the base "Mappin & Webb London"
Assay Office: LONDON
Makers Marks: J.N.M (Mappin & Webb - John Newton Mappin)
Dimensions: Just under 13 inches long from handle to handle. The actual dish is 10.25 inches long, 8.5 inches wide at its widest point and 3.25 inches tall. It weighs 440g
Condition: It is in very good condition
Remarks: This really is a very decorative and very useful antique Victorian solid silver two handled dish, that would look impressive in the centre of any table, perhaps filled with fruit (although it would be a shame to hide the pattern). It would also make a super serving dish or a very posh bread basket, however it does just make a lovely display item
Overseas purchasers please note. Due to the value of this item I am having to limit this to UK purcasers only
Antique and vintage silver by its very nature has been previously used. Silver is a comparatively soft metal and a combination of many years use invariably leaves its mark. I do endeavour to describe all items accurately but do not expect any antique to be in "as new condition".
