Bearing the old Whiting hallmarks on the bottom so this is before the Whiting company was absorbed into Gorham. I don't see a date mark but it is also marked for J.E. Caldwell & Company of Philadelphia. James Emott Caldwell (1813-81) was an American jeweler who founded J.E. Caldwell & Co in 1839. While best known as a major fine jewelry institution of Philadelphia, over the years since its inception, the firm has also been known for its silver, china, crystal, and even stationery. J.E. Caldwell & Co exhibited at The Centennial Exposition in 1876 and was representing the American Jewelry Maker. By the late 19th century, richly decorated table china by Spode and Minton was being produced bearing underglaze backstamps indicating that they were made expressly for J.E. Caldwell & Co., Philadelphia. This piece weighs 3.54 troy ounces or 110 grams and is 7" x 5.5". As visually pleasing as they come, the dish has a scalloped shape and the rim is completely encircled by scrolling tendrils, large flowers, thistles & foliage in deep relief or repousse! Perfect as a decorative piece or, add to your existing fine sterling silver ensemble!

Very good condition. No dents, damage or repairs. There are a few tiny dark spots visible, possibly a tiny dimple or two but nothing to take from the overall beauty of the piece. See pictures for measurements.
