An Early 20th Century Silver Plated Muffin Dish
In the 18th and 19th 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.
Here we have a silver plated muffin dish which would have been used for muffins, crumpets etc. during breakfast or afternoon tea.
It is in good condition.
