Elegant antique French Napoleon III to Belle Epoque era sterling silver "ecuelle", legumier or serving dish in superb condition with rococo style side handles, detailed rose or floral accenting and wonderful condition! A very alluring and unique piece, the bowl itself has a 7" diameter and is just under 12" 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 and each handle, within those is the tiny number "1" that designates .950 silver content (95% pure silver, higher than the .925 standard for sterling silver). I haven't been able to find a silversmith mark so can't narrow that down and provide a more definitive date of manufacture. A wonderful piece, simple enough to fit into an existing fine silver service but unique enough to stand out and attract compliments!
Very good-excellent condition. A tiny dimple or two possible but, as you can see, they don't come much finer! See pictures for measurements.
