Add elegance to your meal with this svelte silver plate server from the turn-of-the-century sporting a Pheasant above and four condiment cups below. Made of quadruple plate by the Wilcox Silverplate Company (1865-1941) the server is handled and additionally decorated with leaves and florals in between each cup and a single rosebud at the base of each one. Each cup is angled on one side, which seems to be original and has a slight dent inside, also original, from the attachment of the base arm. Measures just under 12” tall to the top of the bird’s beak and is 5.25” squared. You’ll find it to be in very good condition and still shiny in most areas. There is a slight rock when placed on a flat surface (very slight) and the Pheasant still retains a bluish cast in spots. It is appropriately marked on the bottom and ready to debut at your next fancy function or tea party. Just think of the compliments you’ll get when you serve sauces (or dinner mints) in THIS piece!
