A Silver Plated Late Victorian Small Serving Dish with Two compartments
In the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries elaborate serving pieces were used in the dining rooms of wealthy households. Food would be brought from the kitchens by the staff and placed on buffet servers at the side of the room, a butler or footman would then serve the food from the serving pieces. These pieces would come in all manner of materials and styles including silver, silver plated and porcelain.
This is a small silver plated serving dish with two compartments for serving small vegetables or sauces. It would have been suitable for a hotel or restaurant.
The silver plate is good with some minor scraches to the inside from the serving sppons which is common with serving pieces of this age.
