We are pleased to present this beautiful sterling silver vintage dish from world-renowned silver manufacturer Meriden Britannia.
As silver began to replace pewter for popular home utensil use, Charles Casper founded the Meriden Company in 1869 in Meriden, Connecticut.
It would be in the 1800s that Meriden, Connecticut would earn the nickname "the silver city" due to the large number of silver manufacturers therein.
The dish has a nice size and great substance, measuring over 10 inches long.
As you can see, the piece has an elegant oblong shape with slightly upturned sides.
The interior sides feature a beautiful fluted detail while the bottom remains perfectly smooth.
You will find the traditional Meriden Britannia hallmark on the underside of the dish which consists of an eagle embracing a capital "M".
The word "Sterling" is stamped below this as is the style number "723".
There is a small dent near the rim of the interior base of the dish, as well as some expected patination. You will also find some light surface scratching.
The piece has not been thoroughly polished, as we like to leave that to the preference of the buyer. It is sure to shine brightly.
Overall, this elegant dish remains in very good vintage condition.
