Sterling Silver Bon Bon Dish - Antique Victorian (1900)

£1,995.00

An exceptional, fine and impressive antique Victorian English sterling silver bon bon dish; part of our Christmas themed silverware collection

SKU C7182

This exceptional antique Victorian English solid silver bon bon dish has been realistically modelled in the form of a reindeer drawn sleigh.


The main vessel of this sterling silver dish is embellished with fine chased decorated floral motifs and leaf textures, incorporating a scroll bordered vacant cartouche to either side.


The oval rounded cargo bed/vessel of the sleigh is supported by two impressive cast silver leaf decorated runners, conjoined to one end with a crowned swan design.


This exceptional Victorian bon bon dish body is further ornamented with an impressive cast putto* design, holding the reigns.


The fine reigns conjoin to the impressive cast silver reindeer ornamented to the forefront of the vehicle, in a classic Christman theme.


The hallmarks struck to the body and cover include:

Maker's mark: ETB (Edwin Thompson Bryant)

Silver quality/purity mark: 930*, Lion passant (sterling, 925/1000)

Date mark: e (1900)

Assay mark: Leopard head (London, England)

Additional mark: F (foreign manufacture mark)


* In art and culture, a putto (plural: putti) is a chubby male child, usually nude and occasionally bearing wings. It can be determined in this instance that a child figure was used to represent Baby Jesus, as in many cultures/demoninations he is percieved as the true spirit of Christmas.


** The country of origin hallmarked this item with the standard mark 930 and once imported into Britain the silver purity was tested and hallmarks struck reaffirming the silver is a minimum of sterling standard.
