Gorgeous antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era sterling silver "ecuelle", legumier or serving dish in superb condition with Louis XVI or rococo style acanthus themed side handles & border and interlaced "LM" or "ML" monogram! A very alluring and unique piece, the bowl itself has a large 10" diameter and is 14.5" wide with those gorgeous handles! Fine old French sterling silver and all in fabulous condition! The French Minerve or Minerva hallmark on the side of the bowl, marked "1" that designates .950 silver content (95% pure silver, higher than the .925 standard for sterling silver). The silversmith mark is there but I can't quite make it out so haven't been able to find a definitive reference. A scrumptious piece, simple enough to fit into an existing fine silver service but unique enough to stand out and attract compliments!
Excellent condition. A tiny dimple or two possible but, as you can see, they don't come much finer! Thick, heavy old French sterling silver and made to last. See pictures for weight and measurements.
