A fine and impressive antique Edwardian sterling silver presentation hors d'oeuvres dish; part of our silverware collection
This impressive antique sterling silver hors d'oeuvres dish consists of a quartet of dishes presented as a single item.

The anterior dish is the largest of the four, and the posterior, the smallest.

The terminals of each piece are ornamented with oval shell and leaf decorated vacant cartouches to both the anterior and posterior faces.
The shaped stem of each piece is also ornamented with chased flower and scroll decoration, with shell and leaf decorated heels.
The dish and accompanying flatware are presented in a hinged oak case embellished with brass fittings at each corner and a shield shaped vacant brass cartouche to the centre of the cover.
The case has a velvet and satin lined interior.
This impressive and unusual Edwardian hors d'oeuvres server is an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality, in excellent and presentation condition.
Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the of the server and to each piece of flatware are all very clear.
