Description


This exceptional antique 18th century Britannia standard silver* strawberry dish has a plain circular form.


The panelled body of this Queen Anne dish is plain and unembellished with an incurved shaped rim.


The underside of this silver dish bears the contemporary engraved initials 'GPR', in addition to the original scratch weight 11.6 troy ounces; as to be expected the measured weight has subtly diminished in keeping with age to 11.2 troy ounces.


* Britannia Silver - The Britannia silver standard of 958 (95.84% of fine silver), denoted by the icon of the seated Britannia holding an oval shield, was introduced by William III in 1697. This was to indicate the slightly higher standard of silver from sterling silver standard of 925 (92.5% of fine silver).
