Description

This pretty little dish was probably intended to sit on a lady's dressing table and would of held pins, small items of jewellery or other trinkets.

The piece carries full U.K. hallmarks for Birmingham 1904 and has the makers mark for the respected silversmith, Henry Matthews.

The Victorians and Edwardians were great lovers of sentiment and as such, heart shaped pill boxes, snuff boxes and dishes like this were popular.

The design of the item is very typically Victorian / Edwardian in manner with its heavily ornamented repousee scrolls and flower motifs - to the centre of the dish is a vacant cartouche which would of been suitable for engraving the original owners monogram - this piece seems to have never been personalised.

The dish measures 11.6cm across and is 9.3cm top to bottom - the total unpacked weight is 37.5g.

This is a nice piece to gift to someone you love - the piece is full of Edwardian charm and sentiment and it's made by a good silversmith!
