A heavy molded metal dish that has been silver plated. It has a shallow foot and you can see the design reverse underneath. The design is of women’s heads on either end of the dish.

The central well has a ring of tulips surrounding the central medallion with the letter J. It has been etched with the number (year) “05”. The dish is still shiny having much silver.
There is a mark on the base. It reads, “AMERICAN SILVER PLATE CO. QUADRUPLE” and the number “601”. Someone has etched their name below the mark.
