Elegant antique to vintage French hallmarked sterling silver & cut glass 7" caviar serving dish with ornate festooned silver border and inner glass dish! The base piece would be filled with chipped ice, the top smaller dish floating on top and filled with your favorite caviar, or even shrimp cocktail perhaps! The remnants of a gilded or vermeil finish on the sterling silver rim give it a two-toned or gilt accented look and the larger outer glass dish is both beautifully shaped and has a crisp wheel cut pattern around its bulbous base. A wonderful serving piece, easily incorporated into your fine sterling silver table service and sure to get compliments.
Very good-excellent condition. As mentioned above, there is some loss and/or wear to the vermeil finish on the sterling border but I think it's even more attractive in its current two-toned state. A slight lift or two to the silver rim but no dents, damage or repairs and no chips, cracks or other damage to either glass pieces (though a tiny nip or two to the base is possible). See pictures for measurements.
